Mar 20/21 to 25/26 Meteors

Nightly meteor rates remain low as there are no major active showers and the background Sporadic rate is near a yearly minimum. Rates were also depressed as a weak winter storm passed through the area, Though the storm only produced a few hundredths of an inch of rain, the clouds it produced affected observing for 3 nights.
