Meteors for 73P reprise
During my brief observation (radiant was only 12 deg above the horizon, limiting magnitude around 5.5) I saw nothing. I have seen no reports of high t-taurid activity anywhere.
So was the radio alert a false alarm? Having multiple radio stations picking up high meteor rates for two nights in a row suggests not (and the bloke who runs the network doesn't think so either) but radio reflections can pick up smaller particles that we can't see, so it might have been a "microfine" shower.
