    Dear Hiroshi,

    Yes, we can confirm, using the data recorded from 25 video stations 
of the SPanish Meteor Network
(www.spmn.uji.es) operated by different colleagues around Spain, that 
the activity outburst over Europe is
associated with the Epsilon Perseids. We also detected a minor outburst 
of this radiant on 2012, but this
year's activity has been much stronger and exhibiting bright fireballs.
