Nov 17/18 to 24/25 Meteors

We are now entering a transition period as we leave behind November’s showers (such as the Leonids and Taurids) and look forward to December’s offerings (Geminids and Sigma Hydrids). The nights tabulated below mark the 61st consecutive night with a video meteor detection. Actually the 62nd night already happened but will be summarized in the next post. I though the night of the 23rd/24th was going to break the streak but the cirrus thinned enough to let a few meteors through. Oddly, the next night was worse even though it appeared better at first glance.
