Friday The 13th Meteor Shower

Did anyone else see those meteors / shooting stars on the 13th?  Is it me or did those not look really weird? I don't know if they were break-aways from an asteroid or if they were just the cluster that is normally seen around the summer months in their travels but I didn't see a tail on any of them.  There were other things that were off / different too.

Hey, Spooky! The Perseid Meteor Shower. Caught some of it here.(Mid West)  They did look more like falling stars. Gotta watch those meteor showers, though! Remember 'Day Of The Triffids'?lol         Later, Spooky!            Kaboom

Clouds or no clouds they were extremely hard to see.  Like a very fast spark going in one direction and then nothing, you wouldn't be able to follow the same one in it's route for more then a couple of seconds.  No tail what-so-ever on any of the ones I saw and they did not appear to be following the same route in a group cluster or anything.  It was hit and miss, like you'd see one and look and look for 5 minutes and see another for only seconds.  They were some of the fastest looking shooting stars I ever saw.

My poor cat couldn't figure out what the heck I was looking at.  Probably the neighbors thought I was about to lose my mind too.
