The IAU has the shower listed as #404. Radiant is RA 232 (15:27), Dec +67,
velocity 32 km/sec. No activity period is given; based on the reports, maybe
a day or two either side. Of course, this year it coincides with the Full
moon. Listed peak is Solar Long 299 (Jan 19-21). Just for fun, I have added
it to the Excel Spreadsheet mentioned in the NAMN Notes. Next year will
certainly have better conditions.

Dear Gang,
   Any word if the gamma Ursae Minorids may perform this year? There was
some talk about their activity in 2010:
