Jan 5/6 Meteors
January 6, 2014
Now that’s more like it. After two straight nights with cirrus, a clear night once again produced a larger number of detections. (And yes I know I shouldn’t complain about a few nights of cirrus when much of the US and Canada is undergoing a deep freeze).
The short window to see Quadrantids has already closed and this shower is done for the year. Still the other minor showers and Sporadics produced 30 detections.
