Happy to, Jia! Refer to the following posting from our 'meteorobs'
Web archive. It's a response to someone who asked this same (very
good) question earlier in the year. Here's the URL:

Note that "CURMA" is just Malcolm's IMO "observer ID": in his case,
it's the first 3 letters of his surname, and the first 2 of his first.

Clear skies!
