Jan 6/7/8 Meteors

The night of Jan 6/7 was nice and clear producing 32 detections. Though the next night was plagued with cirrus it did see some nice activity from the December Leonis Minorids (DLM). Though only 14 meteors were seen, four of them were DLMs. Too bad the night wasn’t clearer to see if any more fainter DLMs would have been seen.
