<p>That will vary from place to place but it sounds like many people witnessed
well over 500/hour.&nbsp; In my counting I am sure that it was over 1000/hour
from my back yard.&nbsp; 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.&nbsp; 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.&nbsp; His group
of 18 claim to have seen over 4000 from about midnight on.
