27 meteors

That's how many we counted last night (or rather early this morning) during the Perseid meteor shower, in spite of the light pollution. We started watching at 2 a.m. and came indoors about 4. That was the peak viewing time. It was so nice outside. Sweater weather. Brownies. No mosquitoes.
