August 23/24 to 29/30 Meteors
August 30, 2010 1 Comment
Even though there are no major showers currently active, meteor rates are still elevated as the background ‘Spoadic’ rate is near its annual peak.
Here in Tucson, the monsoon has taken a break after a rather active stretch. Though we are a little above our average rainfall level, the storms have been rather boring this year.
The nights should be clear for the next few days until the wind swings out of the southeast again and the monsoon moisture returns.
