Polling Day Meteors - Eta Aquarids

My len was pointed quite a distance
from etaAquarids radiant
- still the long streaming meteors were detected near the 'c' shaped Corona Australis.
A plot of the three meteors confirmed
their identity - they all intersected in the
circled radiant X

A long etaAqurids, CrA at lower left corner.

Another going towards CrA

A rather bright one transversed CrA on the right mid- upper.

Frame by frame showing the meteor dragging a thin tail.
Note the arrow-shaped terminal points.
