Well, after all the hype about it, I saw absolutely bugger-all ~!
Did anyone else in S.A get to see the meteor shower?
My husband was working last night out at Canyon Lake and he has the best views of the sky out there (pitch black!) but he only saw 1 "good one" and then nothing else.
Anyone?

I didn't see anything last night. I went to bed around 1130, so I'm sure I missed the bulk of it. I'm going to try and stay up a little later tonight though.

I saw several very bright ones about 11:30. I'm sure I would have seen more if there wasn't all the light pollution. The bright moon last night didn't help either. It depends much on what time of night you're looking. The peak time is early morning (midnight to 5am), unfortunately the moon is out then as well, which outshines many of the meteors.

The morning of the 12th (this morning) was supposed to be the best. I went out a couple times before 3:00 AM and didn't see jack. My son said he saw some and heard one too, but I think that was a random street noise near him that happened to coincide with a meteor streak. I wish you could lay down without worrying about some sort of bugs attacking you. I used to watch it in Michigan when I was a kid and we would lay on this old tree that was knocked down by a tornado. That was the way to watch a meteor shower

It was amazing Tuesday night. We viewed from the Texas Hill Country and were able to see a multitude of meteors and one VERY large one that lasted a few seconds had a very long and thick tail and broke into four pieces as it entered the atmosphere. It lit the sky with white and purple flames them amazingly it produced a VERY loud SONIC BOOM a few minutes after entering the atmosphere!

All of us jumped to our feet and cheered and applauded the amazing sight and sound.

last night was great to see meteors for us --- we watched from our backyard for about an hour and we saw about 35 or so --- it was really great and the kids loved it...
