Bruce

I wondered the same thing, especially on the third meteor.  The first two I
shook off to possible sporadic coincidence, however a third one made me
wonder.

I noticed from another post that I wasn't the only person noticing this.  I
would be nice to have something compete against the Leonids  (as if
anything could..hehe).

If it was clear tonight, I would be back out there, however, the Pacific
Northwest is fickle this time of the year and I was lucky to get in a good,
freezing night last night.
