(meteorobs) More Observations From Malta 13-14 / 11 / 1999



Hi,

After Yesterday's thunderstorm , the night sky miraculously cleared out and 
crispy clear skies were enjoyed by the lucky observers at Ras Il Qammieh .
Unfortunately high humidity and a thin layer of haze made observations for 
some hours impossible.

We managed to observe Linearids (possible ? ), N Taurids , S Taurids and 
Leonids.

Location : Ras Il Qammieh Malta Europe (Lat 35.59 N  Long 14.19 E )

		Martin Galea De Giovanni (GALMA)
