Oct 9/10 Meteors
October 11, 2008 1 Comment
The Tucson camera picked up more meteors than usual last night including lots of nice bright meteors. Many of the bright ones were from the 2 Taurid showers. Oddly, I didn’t pick up any Orionids last night.
Clouds and rain are predicted for the next 2 nights as a strong low pressure system moves into the western states. In Arizona we may get some additional moisture from Hurricane Norbert as it tracks across Baja and northern Mexico.
