Hi All,
I observed yesterday for an hour before the Moon became too 
much of a nuisance. Before I set up the sky was perfectly clear 
and very transparent for July. But as soon as I began to set my 
equipment a patch of low clouds began to form just to the south of 
my observing location. As a result only the sky below 50 deg was 
clear in the direction of south and it was mostly clear from the 
zenith towards north. So I faced north the entire observation, which 
reduced my ability to distinguish ecliptical showers well.
Only little meteor activity was seen during the one-hour 
observation. Six meteors in total, but there was a nice Alpha 
Capricornid low in the west. Also, an early Perseid was seen 
shooting below Polaris.

Clear skies!
