Yes as the link to that Yahoo page points out it actually has nothing to do with the constellation Perseus but is the comet Swift-Tuttle

I always see a few that are not close to the Perseid.

I wish I had a good telescope right now because with the clear sky and no moon out Jupiter would be easy to look at.

More sunshine here today sunny

Another perfect night here Cravn smile

60 degrees and I just came back in the house (almost 5am)

I saw lots of meteors and a couple were nice bright ones.

7 orbital satellites and for the first time in all my years I watched 3 or those satellites cross each others path so close it looked like they would run into each other (almost 23,000 miles up)

Then as I am watching Orion come up above the east horizon I see a bright light in the opposite direction so I turn and look west and sure enough it was the ISS and I watched it cross the sky until it was gone!

And the entire time just behind me I could see the brightest thing in the sky again all night Jupiter hellyes

It is always the most fun if you are out there on a clear night with no Moon and it is this warm out there from midnight until just before sunrise......back in the day I would also add a .........well that is another story lol
