I had to work Wednesday night, but managed to see a couple of meteors in the parking lot on my break around 1:00 AM (Thursday). Both were fast and short, but the first was about 2nd magnitude, east of Cygnus, and just west of the zenith. Might have seen a third meteor, but if it was, it could not have been part of the Perseid shower, since it appeared to be heading roughly TOWARDS Perseus. Wish I could have been out all night, but at least I wasn't totally shut out of one of the best meteor showers of the year.
