July 22/23 Meteor

Both the Tucson and San Diego cameras had to deal with clouds last night. According to Bob: “Fog rolled in near 2am prematurely ending this session. There was also some altocumulus clouds earlier in the evening that may have also affected the rates.” Here in Tucson I was very surprised to even get a single meteor. Now if the sky would just clear for a night or two next week, we should have some nice results as the Southern Delta Aquariids, as well as the Alpha Capricornids and Piscids Australids, peak.
