In Sedona AZ the meteor shower was disappointing with only 4 meteors observed looking towards the radiant area. Three of the four were small but colored, two were bi-colored orange and green. The most brilliant of the bunch appeared just at dawn. It seemed colorless but may have had an interesting characteristic. It appeared "beaded" or perhaps rotating in the original RAW photo (which is not as obvious in the compressed .jpg photo you see now). The camera was a Nikon D200 with an f2.8 24mm lens, ISO 1000.
