Rare meteor shower (storm?) Memorial Day night?

I thought I saw one last night too. Maybe I didn’t hallucinate it.

Could have been a sporadic (not attached with any distinct shower) but apparently there was a bona fide Tau Herculid seen on a meteor camera a day or two ago. Fingers crossed this turns out to be something! Odds aren't high, though!

Saw a handful, maybe five or six or so. Not bright and long lived. Still, pretty cool. Not historic like some were hoping tho. 

Yep. I saw two maybe. Not a storm though!

Went out last night around 11 and counted roughly 15 in about 20 minutes.  All but 2-3 were quickly fading, short streaks.  There was one nice long streak that was pretty impressive.  I thought this event had high potential after that.  

Went back out at 12:15 and saw one in about 20 minutes.  Off to bed after that letdown.
