I woke Zoe up at 3:45am this morning and we went out to watch for Leonid meteors. The sky was largely clear with a little thin cloud now and then. Our observing site, the cricket pitch in Reading University grounds, was not ideal: there are sodium street lights at about 100 metres all round, but it is the best available site close to our home. Between 04:10 and 04:50 UT we saw 8 Leonids. Not a meteor storm but still worth the effort. Zoe seemed pleased, anyhow.
