Clouds for Perseids

This year the Perseid meteor shower timing was very good with its usual peak time occurring after midnight for my timezone. The moon would be nearing new and not much of a factor.

Unfortunately the weather pattern turned out to be cloudy. Below is the NWS satellite image just after midnight on the 13th. This would have been the peak time Sunday morning.

From the IMO reports I note the Perseid shower was about its usual strenght. So I did not miss anthing special this year. The next big meteor shower will be the Geminids in December and like the Perseids it has very good timing this year.
