Dec 19/20 Meteors
December 20, 2008 1 Comment
We just can’t seem to get rid of the cirrus. The last hours of the night (also when the most meteors are observed) were hampered by thick cirrus.
Still 12 meteors including a single Ursid and Coma Berenicid were detected.
I will be taking the next week off for Christmas. Unless something big happens in the world of asteroid, comets and meteors, I’ll see everyone again the week after Christmas.
Happy Holidays and a Merry Christmas!
