Not quite the spectacle we observed.. Perseids meteor shower

Spent an hour at the allotment, just prior to midnight, looking at the Perseids meteor shower. Last night was meant to be the best time to observe this event since 2007, as the New Moon coincided with a good weather forecast and peak activity. In the event, we saw a handful of bright sparks flare across the north eastern horizon. Good but not spectacular. Whilst waiting for the occasional ‘astronomic sparkler’ the resident Barn Owl were busy feeding young in the nearby box.
