Dec 27/28 Meteors

Another crystal clear night here in southern Arizona. Our week of clear night skies will come to an end tonight as a batch of cirrus moves through the region. Tonight’s clouds will undoubtably reduce the number of meteors detected though the bright ones should still shine through.

Last night saw 21 detections which isn’t bad as no major showers are currently active.
