according to the September Epsilon-Perseids peaked today sept.9th with ZHR = 5 around 4 UT, thats 6 AM here in Switzerland. Had clear skies so I drove uphill to Sanetsch pass 2246m asl, had stunning clear view on Milky Way, no wind, rather mild temps, shot the skies with several cams, caught only one nice bright meteor which I think is indeed a September Eta-Perseid as when you trace back it goes to Perseus ( near center ) .

its good to see Orion again, too !

Canon EOS 6D , Samyang 12mm/2.8 Fisheye, ISO 5000, 20 seconds. Local time was 04:40

Nice catch - dont often see images of meteors from this shower.

thanks owleye1 / DZ .
and I want to make a correction : in the Details description at the end I wrote Eta-Perseid but it should be Epsilon-Perseid. Mea culpa.
