Jan 3/4/5 Meteors
January 5, 2014
The last two nights have been hampered by high cirrus in southern Arizona. As a result, meteor rates were suppressed. It also doesn’t help that last week’s major shower, the Quadrantids, has come and gone and none of the established meteor showers are showing much activity. Hopefully more will be picked up tonight since there are no clouds in the forecast.
