As for the June Lyrids. This shower was discovered by two independent
observers in 1966 and observed in detail in 1969. A weaker return is known
from 1974 to present. It's annual activity calculated from 64 IMO records is
at 1.5 without a distinct maximum, ie at the detection limit. If this shower
shows more signs of life than it has, the best course of action is to plot
everything seen during this low activity period. If something is there, then
on some future date, most likely it will be added back on to IMO's working
list. But presently there's nothing to watch for as a dedicated shower.
Perhaps it is periodic, but this will have to be established over a period
of time and the accumulation of plot records.
