Lucky the clouds cleared.  This was the best shot of the night which was mostly clear with a little cloud/haze from time to time. A full range of meteors seen from +3 to -1, with this one at about -4.  One of the best displays I have witnessed. There was another bright meteor at around 0135 caught on my Image Source SER file (exp 10sec) which was pointing through a window towards Orion. That may have been brighter, but I didnt see it.
