Some observers have recorded fireballs that they suggest could be precusors of this event and radio astronomers are detecting increased activity.
The shower maximum is predicted for 07 – 08 UT on Saturday morning, daylight in the UK, but some of us will run north-facing video cameras through the morning hours in case there are any very bright fireballs.
Unfortunately, the weather forecast for most of the UK isn’t favourable.
There’s a good summary of the prospects for this shower by Rob McNaught here. This is an updated version of the presentation given at the recent The Astronomer meeting. David Asher also has a very good summary on his page here.
There are some images of the parent comet (a real pygmy) in the BAA comet archive here.
