Results of the IMO Video Meteor Network - January 2015
Eighty-four cameras of the IMO Video Meteor Network recorded more than 25 000 meteors in over 9 500 hours of observing time. Flux density profiles are presented for the Quadrantids, covering the period around the maximum for the years 2012 to 2015. It is found that the flux density at the maximum in 2015 was a factor of 2-4 lower than for the years 2012-2014. The population index for the Quadrantids on the night of the maximum was r=1.8, in good agreement with the values from 2013 and 2014.
