Quick Reference

A weak meteor shower with ill-defined activity limits during May and June. The maximum ZHR is only around 5, with possible peaks around June 9 from a radiant at RA 17 m 56 m, dec. −23 °, and June 19 from RA 17 h 20 m, dec. −20°. The shower is not recognized by some authorities, and the meteors may simply be due to the general activity from the anthelion radiant.
