How about urban observations?

How about urban observations?

Up to the moment, all observations we made were from moreless dark sites, so here are couple of images taken few days ago from the center of Pula, Croatia, population of around 70 thousand and lots of light pollution.

Visual limiting magnitude here rarely goes beyond +5M, during this night estimated to be around +4.5M. Despite the focus was not perfect, RMS detected 83 meteors during 11.5h of observations which makes more than 7 meteors per hour even with the first quarter Moon covering a part of the field of view for about 4 hours! Here are some highlights of the night:
