Clouded Out For Orionids

This years Orionid meteor shower was predicted to have higher intensity than normal. With a possible broad peak the shower was observable for several days. Mother nature delivered a stunning knock-out punch to the midwest with a slow moving low pressure area being feed with moisture from defunct hurricane Rick. We have been cloudy and rainy for days.

The live data from IMO suggests there was higher than normal activity, as predicted. Impressive modelling from the meteor scientists.
