Jan 7/8/9 Meteors
January 10, 2010 1 Comment
Sort of the same old, same old the past few nights… a steady drizzle of sporadic meteors, a few weakly active showers and some lost time due to passing clouds. Not included in the numbers below were the 15 meteors seen on the night of Jan 7/8 by my all-sky camera. Some of those meteors were also seen by the smaller FOV, but deeper zenith camera. I’m getting excited over the prospects of running multiple all-sky cams from different sites for orbit determination.
