I saw one meteor in half an hour or so in bad viewing conditions.
It was mostly cloudy in SF Bay Area. Drove up to Santa Cruz Mountains near Palo Alto and found a north-facing gap in the clouds that let me at least see the brighter stars around the Big Dipper (not sure how much of the Giant Space Giraffe I could see, since it's not a constellation I know. Besides the one meteor and some airplanes, I saw a few flickers that could have been really faint meteors, but were probably just stars getting blocked and unblocked by clouds.
Does anybody know if this meteor shower will be back every year, or if this is just a one-time event?
