This Mornings Orionids
... were a little bit disappointing. I saw but one faint meteor, nothing else. I had a good spot, no light sources to interfere and a good field of view. Still there are worse ways to spend the morning than looking at Orion, the Hyades and Pleiades. Other people seem to be seeing a few in the areas that are not clouded out. The International Meteor Organisation's automatically updated results page shows the beginings of a reasonable peak. Hopefully some of you got a better result form the Orionids than I did.
