    Default 209P Meteor Shower



    I went out for a few minutes around 3:30 CST (-5 GST) and didn't see any. Talked to my dad, he got up a bit earlier, stayed out for about 15 minutes, didn't see any. Anybody know how it went?

    Got a nice view of the Milky Way though, so that was really nice. Great to see the Scutum star cloud and a bit of Sagittarius. Looking forward to that later this summer

    Hi Mike. I went out at 12 midnight, and by then my skies had become clouded over. I was able to see enough stars in Ursa Minor, to piece together a mental image of where the radiant should be. I did see one about 12:15 am to the right of Ursa Major (east) and heading south, and I stayed out to find (maybe) another one at 12:45 am. It was hard to tell with so many clouds. I gave up and packed it in by 1 am. I wish that I had a better report for you. But, we should have some better major meteor activity come this July Mike, so let's keep our fingers crossed for some decent skies then.
