Meteor info

On August 11, 2004, at about 21h UT, the Earth will pass through the dense core of the Perseid meteoroid stream from the parent comet Swift-Tuttle. The stream is calculated to pass within 0.0013 AU from the Earth's orbit and should provide plenty of shooting stars. Observation should be good throughout the night. There is a possibility that larger meteoroids will pass through our protecting atmosphere. There is always a danger from space, but fortunately our observation of the skies is increasing.

update 17th August 2004: No reports of damage but we had a good view of the meteors as they entered counted 24 in one hour alone and some of them were big.
