Sorry for slightly rushed post above - was in garden on phone.  Saw some absolutely perfect examples of meteors, lots of flashes and one doozy that was a slash of light in the dark sky. Also entertained by bats, the fox, and a hedgehog trying to attack/ mate with my boot; all within a few miles of central London.   Ain't nature great!  Have finished off my whisky and am beginning to get chilled - I hope others here saw the meteors as well

I saw only one meteor about 11:30 last night. Went up to Blythe Hill park which is a small but fairly elevated park in SE London, and my nearest open space.
Ended up spending the best part of an hour just watching the stars.  It was pretty dark (for London) and hardly a sole about! Lovely!!


[Amazing views of the city too :) ]

Saw a few this evening, but difficult due to light pollution. Just one or two very faint flashes visible from the corner of my eyes :(

Do you mean the fish or the bottom of the feet?
