Hello Pierre,
I shall try to sum up. It is expected, that on June 23 the activity June
Bootids, will be not major. However it is more, than per usual years.
Therefore observations around of this date are very interesting. Probably,
it will be difficult to receive reliable outcomes from visual observations
(because of short, light nights). But the observations can appear very
interesting. To me the message from Byelorussia from Sergey Dubrovsky has
come. In Byelorussia will watch June Bootids from June 20 till June 30. I
think, that it is correct. As speak in Russia: "The Man guesses, and the God
allocates". I shall watch too on visual method IMO (if the weather will
allow). If all will be good, I shall send the observations in Meteorobs.
