(meteorobs) Japanese Draconids


Mr. Daiyu Ito (NMS, Japan) forwarded us some results on the Draconids. He

In Europe, we catched a tail of the activity with ZHR down to about 9
during our early evening. I guess the US must have had low rates indeed,
and since the Draconids had very faint meteors both according to the
japanese and our observations, then you easily start to miss them with
