(meteorobs) May Alpha Bootids appeared

Hi all

Osada,K. and Sumiyoshi,K observed on May 23/24 during 12h-15hUT.
They observed May Alpha-Bootids about HR=5 respectively.  Osada said
that these meter was very faint and all magnitude were 4 to 5.
This shower appeared in 1970 in Japan and I and Osada witnessed this
shower in 1998(see below).


I think that this shower might associated with 73P/Schwassmann-Wachmann 3,
so I want to have follow up observation.
