Nov 12/13/14 Meteors
November 14, 2008 3 Comments
The night of Nov 12/13 was plagued by high cirrus at both the Tucson and San Diego sites. The cirrus was so bad at Tucson that only 3 meteors were picked up the entire night.
Last night (Nov 13/14) was much better with clear skies in San Diego and only a few short bouts of cirrus in Tucson. As a result, a good number of meteors were seen in spite of a very bright near Full moon.
The Leonids continue to build towards there peak early next week.
