July 15/16 Meteors

Bob’s camera in San Diego has been producing the most detected meteors lately. From his notes: “Another clear but hazy night. Rates were down compared to yesterday, especially for the sporadic counts.”

Here in Tucson my camera was running all night but most of the time the sky was full of clouds. I’m still waiting for a nice clear night.
