    With 70% clouds, and Sun at -15 already, I was able to get 
    two points on USA 161, instead of photographing Perseids.
    I saw one left of Perseus, horizontal track near solar midnight,
    visible by indirect lighting, and found a persistent trail when
    turning my head - the trail was still brighter than a zero mag
    star on each retinal "pixel".. But I guess there is a shower 
    with slower meteors, that can be mistaken for Perseids in July.
