It was more of the same over the past week. Meteor rates are still low. With no showers, major or minor, being active, most of the meteors are background sporadics.
It is too bad that rates are so low in June because the weather in Tucson is great for observing. Every night is crystal clear with barely a cloud to be seen. The big question is which will come first, the uptick in meteors that occur every July or the summer rains that herald Tucson’s annual monsoon.
