June 25-30 Meteors

This post closes out the month of June for the SALSA3 meteor camera. No data was collected during the final three nights as I was on travel. The MetRec meteor detection software does support autonomous operations so I could have left the system up and running for those nights. But, the computer running the MetRec software is located in a part of the house that is not climate controlled and since temps have been routinely pushing 110F+, I didn’t want to risk damaging the computer.

The number of active showers has exploded over the past few weeks. Most of these showers are minor. Rather than list each shower below, I will only list the more prominent showers in order to declutter the table.

The best meteor during the last week of June was this Sporadic from June 26 at 06:20 UT.
