Home Forums Meteors The Dragon Wakes Hi,

Bill Ward


The weather here was extremely poor on the 8/9 so thank goodness for the radio observations! Saw a nice clear peak on the radio. Tweeted a few graphs but they could still do with some tweaks. 10 min bins loses some of the general form and hourly bins lose the detail, might try 30min counts….!

In any case the peak rate with me was between 0000ut and 0100ut with a total count of 138 meteors (Draconids plus any others) Entirely subjective manual counts from the HROfft captures, so probably a few +/- throughout . A good result though.

Would’ve been nice to have have had a peek at the shower visually.
