August 13/14 Meteors (the night after the Perseids peak)

Even though the Perseids are now past their peak, rates were still strong last night (comparable and maybe even better than those from the 11th when visual observers recorded ZHRs of ~30).

The Perseids will continue to decrease in intensity and should be back to very low rates of less than 10 per hour within a couple of days.

The monsoon is still on hiatus here but that should change by Monday. Hopefully I can get another good night or two. Then, bring on the rain!
