(meteorobs) Linearids ,Taurids and Leonids From Malta 11-12 / 11 / 1999



More reports from Malta........

Although a small number of Linearids were observed no storm of any kind was 
evident. Sky conditions were very good at first but slowly started to 
deteriorate, with occasional clouds and a bit of haze.

We managed to observe Linearids , N Taurids , S Taurids and  a few Leonids.
