Nov 6/7 to 10/11 Meteors

We are currently in a time of overlap with a slowly declining Orionid shower and a slowly rising Leonid shower. The relative contributions to the nightly meteor totals between the 2 showers is still about equal. But since the Orionid radiant is up for a much longer period of time, the actual rates are very different with the Leonids outproducing the Orionids on a per hour basis.

The Taurids are near their annual maximum and are producing a steady shower of meteors. As for the remaining active shower, the Andromedids haven’t produced anything picked up by my cameras.
