    Default New meteor shower Camelopardalids has started!



    I am right now observing this new meteor shower from my yard.
    NELM at zenith is about 5.2.
    Saw just four meteors yet but i have been out for only about 15 minutes.All of them were white and somewhat slow.
    Seems promising as it is not near peak and already going good.
    Hope it really turns out to be a meteor storm!
    Clear skies to all.

    Yep, our North American friends will have the front seats.

    All of the ones i saw seem to be centered in ursa major!
    All six i saw were white and somewhat slow.
