February 25 – March 2 Meteors

Some actual inclement weather arrived in Tucson this weekend as 0.9″ of rain fell from Winter Storm Titan. For meteor watching this resulted in two missed nights. Even the nights prior to the storm saw varying amounts of cloudiness resulting in fairly low meteor counts.
