July 29-30, 2005 Fireballs
The evening of July 29 saw the peak of the Delta Aquarid meteor shower, and the continuing precursors to the Perseids. The allsky cameras captured many meteors from each of these showers. Additionally, three fireballs occurred that appear to be sporadics- not part of any known shower.
