Feb 13/14 to 17/18 Meteors
February 18, 2010
We’ve had a nice run of clear nights here lately. Though February is usually a low activity month for meteors, my zenith facing camera is averaging 15-20 meteors per night.
I decided to shut down my north facing camera for the foreseeable future. Instead, its computer is now running a much wider field camera for fireball detection.
