Dec 26/27 Meteors

The total number of meteors detected last night was down from the previous night. Most of the difference was a decrease in the number of meteors from minor showers and the Antihelions. Meteor rates shouldn’t change too much over the next couple of nights though we should see a major bump in rates for a night or two around the peak of the Quadrantids on January 2/3/4.
