PERSEID METEOR STORM-Watch & Hear them here Rain or Shine-Post your Sightings and pics!
Perseid Meteor showers peaking now through tomorrow night. Thanks to our beloved internet we can observe them from our computers even if it's raining outside. Of course if you're blessed with clear, dark skies all you need is a lounge chair or blanket, some bug repellent and a pair of eyeballs. That's right, NO FANCY OPTICS REQUIRED.

If it cloudy, raining, or light-polluted where you are, or you're just afraid to leave the cocoon.....there is a remedy. The Meteor Detection site has a live feed of radar echoes (just click on the 'Live Audio' item in the menu. Also, their 3D Meteor detector has been hoppin' all night:

[link to www.merriott-astro.co.uk]

Also there are live meteor cams galore-

Worldwide All-Sky Camera Network:

NASA's Fireball Network;

More radar echoes heard from the US (I personally like the UK audio quality better):

I don't recall seeing such strong radar returns on the UK Detector site before. These images were captured within the last hour so I thought I'd share.

If you're fortunate enough to see a bolide (fireball) as bright as Venus or the Moon, please report it to the American Meteor Society's Report-A-Fireball service.

Good luck, Isis one! hfI'm gonna take a peek outside and see if the clouds have dispersed here. Any first-hand reports are encouraged to check in here. I saw a bright one with a smoke trail 2 nights ago....right near Cassiopeia. It was awesome.

Saw a few last night,
going back out for more now.

Here's wishin' upon a star you all get to catch some :-)

"But the plans were on display . . ."
"On display? I eventually had to go down to the cellar to find them."
"That's the display department."
"With a torch."
"Ah, well the lights had probably gone."
"So had the stairs."
"But look, you found the notice, didn't you?"
"Yes," said Arthur, "yes I did. It was on display in the bottom of a locked filing cabinet stuck in a disused lavatory with a sign on the door saying Beware of the Leopard."

Saw about 10 before the cloud cover :( Three were really nice ones, the rest looked like regular shooting stars. The one I was 4 nights ago must have been an Aquarid as it came out of the northwest.

Great hear from you. i've been checkin' out those audio radar echoes and it's been pinging like crazy for the past few hours When i hear a long, loud one I check out the 3D Detector to see how big it was.

Also check out some of the all-sky cams.

Yes, I have seen some of the best just looking overhead however lay down on grass look up, there can be some good ones along horizon, Earth Grazers...

So don't focus so much on radiant, that is the onrush as we move through the debris trail of the comet, where they "radiate" from


But last shower, I think Leonids, I was fortunate enough to see smoke/vapor trail for this one very bright fireball
