just a reminder that the perseids meteor shower peaks on 12 August
loads of radio reflections already being received ...
zenith hourly rates are high for this shower so even if its cloudy you can still take part!
Thanks Simon for the heads up, had actually forgotten about this lot.
Just wondering about the peak of the Perseids shower. This will be early in the morning of the 12th? And will it still be an impressive show during the night of the 13?

We won't see it in Australia :( Too low on the horizon.

Hi Iceman is this the case for this year only, or does the visibility gradient change from year to year and sometimes we do get a glimpse? I found this link at NASA ....

Also the Radiant Point viewed from SE QLD at 4;30am, note a 1/3 luminated waning cresent moon along with Juup within a half a degree going by stellarium.
But yeah, interesting the comet stream is among the widest so to speak as it is runs along the earth orbit rather than cut through it, meaning the peak of the shower can last for a day or two going by the pevious link, post - ourkind ! :thumbsup:
