Jan 20/21/22/23/24/25 Meteors
January 26, 2014
Since I restarted my video meteor survey last month, I have been able to record meteors on 31 consecutive nights. That streak came to an end on the night of Jan 24/25 when the first storm in many weeks affected Arizona. To call it a storm might be giving it too much credit as it only brought a few sprinkles overnight and no measurable rainfall to the Tucson area (closer to the AZ/Mexico border a few hundredths of an inch were recorded).
When the clouds aren’t in the way, at least 20-30 meteors per night are being detected. None of the active showers are major meteor producers but a few of the minor ones are actively producing.
