March Meteors.

March is not noted for any major shower and the months count is made up of sporadics and contributions from minor showers.

The total count for the month was 1497, with an average daily total of 48, with a maximum of 91 for the 14th march. The hourly average was 2, with a maximum of 11 between 3-4am on 4th March. The signal from graves appears to have gone down between 07:00 on 20th to 19:00 on 21st but I have no confirmation. The count from the 21st to the end of the month was lower than the early part of the month, the opposite to last year ..( see last chart 2018-2019)

April sees the Lyrids shower peaking on the 22nd, coinciding with a bright, just past full moon.
