Jan 13/14 to 21/22 Meteors

All around the world, fireball sightings are being reported. Unfortunately, there just isn’t much going on above my cameras. With the Moon just a few days past Full, rates have been pretty low. Then again, this time of the year is usually a slow one for meteors as no major showers are active, there are only a few minor ones producing any detectable activity, and even the background sporadic rate is near a yearly low.

One Response to Jan 13/14 to 21/22 Meteors

  1. After a long delay due to cloudy weather and computer problems, I am back in business with a new computer and hopefully some clear skies. This session was good despite the bright waning gibbous moon. The December Leonis Minorids were well represented but the Gamma Ursid Minorids did not produce any activity.
