Re: (meteorobs) Re: quads on the 3rd not 4th

This was admittedly based on a small sample of 5 observers and 98 meteors, and the same table shows a ZHR of just 17 at 5:10 UT. If more observations were submitted afterwards, I'll bet it smoothed out the ZHR curve. But yes, it would be worth watching if you can get a halfway decent LM despite the Moon.
