    I had 110 last night on my camera, 179 total the last three nights.

    And also:

    Puppid-Velid   PUP   16

    Monocerotid   MON   29

    chi Orionid   XOR   16

    sigma Hydrid   HYD   29

    46P   46P   8

    Sporadic   SPO   39

    The 46P meteors are part of a new shower from Comet Wirtanen.
