Details:
A group of us from the Irish Astronomical Association visited a dark site away from the lights of Belfast awaiting that magical time between the Sun going down and the Moon coming up. The clouds eventually cleared away too and within the space of 90 mins I saw 15 Perseids and a couple of sporadics - my wife saw 24 but I was attending to the camera!
