<p>That will vary from place to place but it sounds like many people witnessed
well over 500/hour. In my counting I am sure that it was over 1000/hour
from my back yard. I am basing that on the fact that I counted over
100 twice in a five minute period.
<p>I just got off the phone with an amateur astronomer friend who has been
studying and teaching astronomy for 30+ years. Having witnessed many
showers ( as well as viewing 7 solar eclipses) he said that this morning
was one of the most memorable experiences he has ever had. His group
of 18 claim to have seen over 4000 from about midnight on.
