June 17/18/19 Meteors

I probably sound like a broken record, but clouds have once again descended upon southern AZ. There were a few breaks last night which allowed 5 meteors to be detected. The previous night would have been completely wiped out if not for a sudden clearing right before dawn. Amazingly, a single meteor was picked up in the short 9 minutes of clear sky. Clouds will continue to be a problem for the next 2 nights.
