Hi,
Don't too excited, I've never seen very many over the years in Spain, once in deepest Wales the first time I came across this the stars looked like they where all falling out of the sky.........magic.

Lost count of the times I've sat out getting bitten and been lucky to see one shooting star. Every night we go in the pool and unusually we've not seen one so far this year.

Same here. We go for a long walk with the hound late at night. See more at other times of the year. Might be a first this year.....

Hi,
Thick cloud cover up this way, with thunderstorm to the North, hoping this will clear after Mid-Night.

Setting up a camera so not having to stay up this year............ :D

Nothing last night and the skies did clear for me. I usually see one but nada last night (lots of lightening flashing over to the east though)
