Our source for the meteor

Our source for the meteor showers listed in the Almanac is the American Meteor Society (AMS). See: http://www.amsmeteors.org/meteor-showers/meteor-faq/
See # 7 on that page. We've picked a moonless, rural sky, which is different from an absolutely dark sky (which might see over 100). We note this on the meteor shower page in the printed Almanac and also under the chart on this page.
