The Full Moon and persistent clouds have kept the number of recorded meteors low.
From Bob’s notes for last night: “Clouds rolled in shortly before midnight ending this session prematurely. It was interesting to note that 4 of the 5 meteors recorded tonight occurred during the first hour after dusk, a time of normally very little activity.”
