       Perseid Observations from Halifax - Aug.13/14

 Well,it was a so-so night. I went up to the roof about 0030 UT and
stayed till 0430 UT. The sky was between 60%-95% cloudy with cirrus
and a tad damp.By 0335 UT it began to clear a bit.
In all the time I was observing I saw only 3 Perseids and not one
went through the camera field :(

1) 0027 UT -1 white
2) 0136 UT +1 red
3) 0416 UT -2 white

 Clouds came in later on near 0500 UT so I called it quits.....
the only bright thing was a 10pm pass of the space station!

Clear skies
