Every night is producing a steady drizzle of meteors. My zenith pointing camera (the northern one is no longer operational, something I’ll need to fix in the future) is detecting roughly 12-14 meteors per night. Only the night of April 5/6 produced subpar numbers which may have been due to lots of dust in the air (it was very windy that day).
The evening of April 7/8 saw a brilliant long-lived fireball. I plan to highlight this fireball in a future post.
