DescriptionI observed the Aurigid Shower last night at Onyx Summit above Big Bear, off Hwy. 38. Caught this meteor going just below the constellation Orion. I observed for a couple of hours. During the best hour from about 4 to 5 a.m. we saw about 35 meteors with a couple of outbursts of 4 to 5 a minute. It was short, but awesome.
