Meteor shower - 11.8.2012 at 23.49 Helsinki Observation number 7009

Visibility II / V

Observation period 11 August 2012 from 23:00 to 24:00: Before midnight the clouds sailed across the sky, but then they faded appropriately. The air was hazy, Otava almost stood out. Due to previous disappointments, expectations were low. Leaving, however, one visual observation roughly through Cassiopeia on 12 August 2012 at 00.02: a quick glimpse of the length of Cassiopeia. Of the 80 images, a streak had stuck to the edge of one frame just before midnight with a 30-second exposure on August 11, 2012 from 11:48:37 pm to 4:07 pm. The line points roughly toward Perseus, but would there be some other glimpse anyway.
