Oct 31/Nov 1 Meteors

In San Diego, Bob notes “The night of October 30/31 was lost due to clouds. The forecast was for more clouds tonight but except for a few altocumulus early in the evening, skies were clear the entire night. Notice that the North Taurid totals have surpassed that of the southern branch. I would expect this to be the case throughout most of November as the northern branch becomes the principal source of this activity.”
