Title: Persied Meteor Shower 2008
Post by: DaveH64 on July 27, 2008, 06:58:45 AM
The official shower started a couple nights ago with about 1 meteorite expected every hour slowly building up over the next few weeks. By the begining August reaching about 5 per hour increasing to about 12 per hour on the 10th and the figure quoted for the 12/13th August 50 to 80 per hour declining to about 10 per hour by the 15th.

Hoping the weather plays ball.

Thanks Dave, good info there.
I'll open a new forum section for Space Weather for any more posts like this one. It'll also be had for aurora reports.  ;D
