May 13-21 Meteors

The past week has been nice and clear in Tucson. Even with no major active showers, meteor rates have been nice with my camera picking up 12 to 26 meteors per night which is pretty good for May. Most years I average about 12-14 meteors per night in May. This year’s May is averaging almost 19 meteors per night.
