As is typical, tonight is much clearer than last night. However looking at my radio data it seems as if there was barely anything yesterday! The hourly rates look entirely nominal. Anyway just checked my system and I've caught a nice one at 215105 this evening, 18th Nov 2014. Down to my SE, distinctive as it was quite a slow one. William/Alex, anything on your north facing cameras?
Hi, Thanks Alex. There was another much brighter at 041112 this morning (19th Nov) low to my SE. These were recorded with a camera that had no grating. Few Leonids, they seem to have been poor this year. cheers, Bill.
Lots of cloud recently but have had clear spells last night and the night before ... have yet to perform an analysis but there was a reasonable haul of meteors detected during the night of 17th/18th November - an average of circa 35 per camera.
Will check for detections at your stated times as soon as I'm back home.
Did you detect anything (either visually or via radio) at 20141118_172704 ... potential fireball over Northern Ireland - David picked it up but (so far) no one else recorded it on video ... provisional details at www.nemetode.org
I saw something on twitter and went to check. My first detection was at 1731, nothing before. Davids' video looks great. As far as I can tell the leonids just didn't happen (so far...) Even on the radio it looked low. Be interesting to see if other reports bear this out. I had one camera with a normal lens ~6mm @f1. Recorded 38 meteors with that but only 5 I would assign as Leonids. The bright one at 0411 was through some cloud. 6 spectra from the other cameras. With 2 being "Bill's Classification Index" of "nice"
