A specialized meteor camp was organized by the Orion Astronomical Society to cover the Perseid activity around maximum. Ten visual observers recorded 2576 meteors (1544 of them were Perseids) in 87 hours of effective observing time. The highest Perseid rate observed was ZHR = 47, with the maximum night clouded out. The Perseid activity was also covered using photographic and radio techniques.
