Here in Tucson I had planned to observe the Quadrantids this morning
starting at
11:00 UT but overslept. By the time I woke up (after dreaming that I had
missed a
great shower), I was able to get in 0.6 hours of observing (between
12:33 and
13:16 UT). During that time I saw 16 QUA and 9 SPO under a +6.0 LM sky.

Other than a ~10 minute gap with no QUA activity activity was fairly
steady with
lots of 0th to 2nd magnitude meteors but nothing brighter.
