Dear friends,
I anmindeed having some difficulty sending this particular message 
tro meteorobs.  This timne I will not ionclude the piicture; perhap[s 
that is the problem.

I believe I might have seen two meteors at about the right time and 
emanating from the region round Leo.    One was around January 15, 
and it apperead low in the south, coming from the east in the early 
evening hours st about third magnitude.   The other one was earlier, 
but I caught it with my Schmidt camera during its ordinary comet 
search on the morning of January 10, probbly 7th or eighth magnitude. 
The image is enclosed.
