August 26-31 Meteors

It’s been awhile since I posted. With little fanfare, this post closes out my August (post-Perseids) meteor data.

The highlight of the week was a long-lasting, slow Sporadic with a nice flash at the end. The meteor was seen over Tucson on August 26 at 04:54 UT (9:54 pm local time).
