Sorry list but made a mental mis-calculation.&nbsp; Tough when you go to
bed at 1 in the morning after enjoying wine with friends and then getting
up at 4 to watch a meteor shower.
<p>We didn't see over 100 per hour.&nbsp; We saw over 1000 per hour!&nbsp;
As a reality check I asked my wife to guess what the rate was and she said
that it was easily one every few seconds on average.&nbsp; The longest
we had to wait was ~ 5 to 7 seconds and more often than not much less.&nbsp;
Many times you could see multiples and often steaks would be still visible
when new ones shot down.
<p>Again, what a night!!!!!
