Feb 15/16/17/18 Meteors

The last few nights have been hit or miss in Tucson due to a few passing storm systems. Unfortunately the clouds didn’t bring any rain. Activity is still low which is typical for this time of year.

From Bob’s notes: “After a few days of wild weather in southern California, skies have again cleared. I had a very short session this morning with nothing exciting happening. The waning crescent moon in among the stars of Scorpius this morning was impressive.”
