Yes, there are SOME Perseid Meteors out there BUT it was NOT a huge display.
I went outside, in Central New Hampshire (viz. Alton), on Thursday night, August 11, 2016 at 11:30pm. It was fairly dark. I kept the outside lights off. The sky was clear. I could clearly see Cassiopeia. So I knew that visibility, for once, would not be an issue.
To start with, i.e., first 3-4 minutes, saw nothing. Just a few, very faint twinkles. Could have been anything.
Then TOGETHER, two bright and long streaks — one noticeably green from the North and the other from the opposite direction. They crossed before burning out.
Then nothing for about another 4 minutes. Then a much smaller one … and a similar time later a fourth medium sized one.
Lots of flickering up there. Lots of ‘crickets’ chirping out there — non-stop. There was a grasshopper in the house yesterday. So could be those too. And even possibly cicadas.
