Was outside from 9:30 PM EST December 13th until 06:00AM the 14th and counted (tallied them on paper) a total of 162 bright fireballs in that eight and a half hour period. A marine layer of fog rolled in and the clouds have been overhead since. Seems like Orion constellation was being hammered from my perspective. Love the corkscrew effect of this particular meteor. Smoke trail was awesome. No sound though thank goodness.
