We were out on a hill to just after midnight last night. Nowhere near 60 to 100 an hour. We caught about 5 really bright, long trail one and maybe 10 minor 'hits' over 2 hours. . .

There's a cool google sky app for Android users, for them to simply find a constellation.

It's not a bus, lol.
The meteor shower lasts about a week while the Earth travels through an ancient comets debris trail.
So it's happening even as i'm typing right now.
