August 8/9 Meteors
August 9, 2010
Clouds and the occasional drizzle were the norm for most of last night. As is usual during the monsoon, the clouds parted and I was able to get an hour or so of time on the sky. Still in only ~1.5 hours, my all-sky cam detected 9 meteors and my small FOV cam saw 15. Those are real healthy numbers and I can’t wait to see how many I get tonight which should be clear (fingers crossed …).
