It unexpectedly cleared a little bit at 0025 GMT. Although there was a lot of moving cloud, I managed to see all Galilean moons (2 on each side), the Pleiades (M42), Hyades and Orion Great Nebula (M42) with my 15x70 binoculars. I also split Alcor and Mizar. I hoped the Plough area might throw up a Quadrantid but didn’t see any. I saw a mag 0 sporadic meteor flash northwards through Auriga.
