The night from 11 to 12 Aug with
As always in practice the experience is greatly varying. The morning was completely cloud less, but by the evening there were clouds on the sky. Damn. By the night most of the clouds gone away, but a slight gauze persisted. The light background was still there, so I guess that we missed a lot of meteors.
Walking lake-side we have found a place that is not that suck if both great and bright street lamps are closed by the trees. As you probably guessed there are not just the forest. Sitting this way so the lamps will not blind and closing your eyes each time the car drives near lighting up the road and affecting your night vision ability, we have reached visibility around 2m. I felt myself a loser.
During those 3 hours when we were able to observe around 15 meteors have been seen including ones of zero magnitude with long bright trace. This means that the trip was not a complete failure, but I expected something more. Next time I should do more planning. The dark places should be round here, should not they?
