After a few weeks of no active meteor showers, the June Bootids should now be active. Last night was the 1st night of their predicted activity though none were observed. This shower is usually weak though it has produced nice displays on 4-5 times during the past 100 years.
The numbers from the past 2 nights are down a bit because only 1 camera was operational. I had some hardware issues which have now been resolved so the system will be back at 100% for tonight.
