Feb 10/11/12/13 Meteors

After almost a week of clouds, rain, and even a little snow in Tucson, clear weather has returned. Though with a series of storms moving either over or near the region, clouds will still be a problem from time to time.
Two of the last three nights were clear (especially in Tucson). Rates remain low which is a combination of February’s usual low rate of meteor activity and the bright Moon which is hampering observations during the last half of the night.
