If it is a storm it is worth seeing. I was in the Army in 1966 in New Mexico and we fell out in the morning dark and there it was. Very impressive but I did not have time to do a photo. What I remember it was a continuous display as if you were looking at flowers growing directly in my direction. I will never forget and it has set my standards so high a mear shower has no appeal! xD

I also saw this, just as it appears in the photo, we were out looking for it and did not see it but one of us saw it out of the corner of their eyes and then we all saw it. Before we saw it we did not know what to look for, once we saw it we all had a permanent memory to refer to. I was in Ft. Huachuca Arizona for this, clear view to the horizon. Truly wonderful memories.

Little (No?) joy here in Southern California. The wife and I were at a city beach looking over a bay to the Pacific Ocean. Partly cloudy. Lots of airplanes. I had 3 or 4 maybe sightings in my peripheral vision but nothing I could really call as a meteor, just some flashes (disintegration maybe?). My wife didn't spot anything.

Too much light pollution here from those new LED street lamps, there are no side shields on them and can be seen miles away.

Rare -- increasingly rare -- thick cloud cover and rain storms in the high Nevada desert during this event; ignoring prodigious light pollution.
