Multi-tasking? Meteor observing at Panic Point

 I had troubles finding any sightline for the comet NEOWISE but did see one meteor for the effort:

Corona Borealis is half way on the left side. The comet ought to be in the trees bottom right and the meteor trail is upper right - might be a Kappa Cygnid - Cygnus was nearly overhead.

 The glow is from the city of Orillia to my West.

There were 2 other meteors recorded:

The glow is from the road junction, #12 with Atherley Road at Tudhope Park.

The Park itself  looks quite pretty and was my focus when the Moon rose:
