Did anyone else see any?
I saw one from Bolton on Monday night (around 22:45), but last night I went out around 22:30 and saw 13 in as many minutes, including 3 bright ones and 2 non-Perseids (not from the same radiant). I was at a dark site down in the Wye Valley, but there was some hazy cloud around.
I also saw the International Space Station on both nights.

I was out until well after midnight and just caught the one. Bright enough to leave a trail in the sky.

Nice shooting, Bill!
What lens did you use to get such a wide-angle view?
