August 15/16 to 17/18 Meteors

After 3 nights of mostly clouds, last night was clear enough to allow some good video meteor watching. Perseids rates are done big time now that we are a few days past maximum. None of the other active showers appear to be producing much.

    Did anyone else see the fireball in the sky last night in Sonoma? It bordered Sonoma & Kenwood. The smoke trail stayed in the sky for some time. This was just before dark. It was fantastic.
