Feb 17-24 Meteors

The non-winter of 2014 (at least for Tucson) continues. And even though most nights see some amount of cirrus, it is clear enough that meteors are detected almost every night. In fact 60 of the past 62 nights have seen at least one meteor detected by my video system.

Most of the recent February activity are Sporadic meteors not affiliated with any known meteor shower.
