I have been out over the last week watching Comet Garradd and have notice a nice number of  meteors coming out of Cygnus which I figured were Kappa Cygni.Even got a couple of fireballs.

James and All,

Your observation coincides with the start of the Aurigid meteor shower. I highly doubt that this shower is responsible for this activity as it is very weak away from the peak morning of September 1st. Even then the expected visual rates would be less than 5/hr.
