ByOlivier and members of his American Meteor Society had succeeded in disproving an erroneous idea about meteor showers. Using careful observations, they restored the public's trust in predictions Double station meteor observation using TV CCD unintensified techniques was started in in Nikolaev astronomical observatory (RI NAO).

Their main interest was to determine hourly rates and shower radiants. An important milestone was Denning’s radiant catalogue (Denning ), which included shower :// The movement of meteor shower radiants over aeons.

I have no desire to enter into a protracted debate on this – indeed, there is. Theoretical radiants and velocities are calculated for all asteroids of perihelion distance less than AU which approach the Earth to within AU, and it is shown that the lack of observed meteor streams for each can be explained in terms of the radiants being inaccessible from the Adelaide site (35°S), the lack of observations at the 75 64O/abstract.With an RTL-SDR or other radio it is possible to record the echoes of the MHz Graves radar bouncing off the ionized trails of meteors.

This is called meteor scatter and it is usually used to count the number of meteors entering the atmosphere. Amateur radio astronomers EA4EOZ and EB3FRN decided to take this idea further and synchronised their separate receivers and recordings with a The book predicts when exceptional meteor showers will occur over the next fifty years, making it a valuable resource for both amateur and professional astronomers.
