Meteor shower last night

I forgot to post a heads-up yesterday about the meteor shower peaking last night.
But it did. So there.
If you were outside last night, and you managed to have a cloudless sky, you should have been able to see some meteors.

Even though the full moon messed things up a bit, the part of the sky that was facing away from the Moon was still fairly dark.
I only had time to go and watch for about 15 minutes (at around midnight) but I managed to see several meteors, one of them very long (it seemed to last at least a full second) and very bright.
So it was a rather successful meteorwatch from my end :-)

Hope you all had a good meteor shower!
