Jan 10/11/12 Meteors

The most active minor meteor shower during the nights of Jan 10/11 and 11/12 was the December Leo Minorids (DLM). The DLM is one of many showers that seem to be active this time of the year in Leo, Leo Minor and nearby constellations. There is even some debate as to whether the DLM is a real shower or just a part of a continuum of showers.
