Jan 18/19/20 Meteors

The meteor year can be divided in two, a half with low meteor activity and one with high activity. The transition between high and low activity usually takes place in mid to late January and extends into June. Still rates seem to be holding up fairly well though we may see only half as many detections by the time February starts.
