Hi Here next a double sketch I made about the two hours observation of this very specific meteor shower.

The activity was so so but the spectacle was there

 

First a look of the only traces of the AMO made during the short maximum : 4h53 to 5h09 UTC

And here a second one with all AMO traces, I don't sketch the LEO and Sporaidcs one

 

AMO-all_l.jpg

 

For more information about all the observers, follow this IMO link : https://www.imo.net/...r=AMO&year=2019

 

Clear sky to you all

Michel

Very nice pictures!

Glad you were able to see it! Mostly clouded out on this side of The Pond.

Nice to learn that the shower did materialize for you folks in Europe!  waytogo.gif

 

Could you possibly give us an estimate of the hourly rate, during what you perceived to be the peak observing period?

Michel,

 

These are two very fine watercolors of the shower. It was out of range to be seen at the maximum here and where I am clouds and rain blocked out the sky all night.

Well done as always.

 

Frank :)

Hi Mr B

The IMO just gives a first estimation of a ZHR equal to 50 with a precision of +/-10 and the peak near 5 UT

Michel,

 

Nice observation and a great recording of the event--and I can see the Beehive, too!  smile.gif 

 

It was cloudy over Greenbrier County but I think you in Europe got to see more meteors than those with clear skies did here.

Hi Michael,

Thank you for your nice comment

Indeed the Beehive was easily visible from the dark sky 1km from home. 

From the Americas including US, Brasil and Canada there are some (5 on 13) good counting aswell.

 

Now it's raining a lot, (probabli a new climat record!) so no observation and I can write on CloudyNights...

 

Michel
