The last two nights produced another 28 meteors. The Moon is still bright and high in the sky right before dawn. Since the number of observable meteors peaks right before dawn, the Moon is undoubtedly keeping rates down a bit. This should become less of an issue over the next few days as the Moon approaches its New phase.
