I spent from 510am to 545 on Thursday morning, leaning back against the sloping side of the Subaru Impresa, to watch the part of the sky away from the annoying corner streetlight. I saw 9 bright meteors, magnitude -3, -2, 1, -2, 2, -1 (was reddish with a brief trail, but not one of the Gemini meteors – wrong direction) 0, -1 (not a Gemini), 1. And five satellites passed by.
There was ground fog and a heavy layer of frost on everything, including my glasses when I was done. So no photos with all the moisture, the sky was foggy and they wouldn’t have come out well.
Where to look for Saturn in the sky…
Saturn is low in the southern sky, rising about 9:30pm local daylight time, highest in the south after local midnight.
