Quadrantid Meteors - January 2011

A two hour run of images before dawn turned up just 5 meteor trails. As luck would have it the best one goes off the frame at top right.

The image below is a composite of all the trails with just enough to get some idea of where the radiant lies, toward the middle right of the image. They are mostly faint so you'll need to click for the larger image to find them.
