(meteorobs) Re: Average Orionid Magnitude
This is a bit fainter than my results of +2.29 for the 20th and +2.46
for the 21st. I also still have 2 hours from the 22nd to listen to. I
would guess the Orionid magnitudes for that morning were close to your
results as there was a complete lack of fireballs and many 3rd and 4th
magnitude Orionids seen.
Perhaps the average magnitude dims as we move past the date of maximum
