Meteor Showers: An Annotated Catalog by Gary W. Kronk

By Gary W. Kronk

Meteor showers are one of the so much astonishing celestial occasions which may be saw via the bare eye, and feature been the item of fascination all through human heritage. In “Meteor Showers: An Annotated Catalog,” the observer can entry designated study on over a hundred annual and periodic meteor streams with the intention to capitalize on those majestic spectacles. each one meteor bathe access comprises info in their discovery, vital observations and orbits, and offers a whole photograph of length, place within the sky, and anticipated hourly premiums. Armed with a fuller realizing, the beginner observer can larger view and get pleasure from the bathe in their selection.

The unique e-book, released in 1988, has been up-to-date with over 25 years of study during this new and better variation. virtually each meteor bathe research is accelerated, with a few unique minor showers being dropped whereas new ones are additional. The booklet additionally comprises breakthroughs within the examine of meteor showers, similar to exact predictions of outbursts in addition to comet and meteor observations from the sixth century to the seventeenth century that weren't released within the first variation. It holds the entire details had to motivate a brand new observer or supply deeper wisdom to the long-time fanatic.

Among all of the photographic lists, only two meteors appear to be associated with this stream. Designated 6112 and 10081, they were detected on 1953 January 13 (l = 294°) and 1954 January 13 (l = 294°), respectively, and indicate an average radiant of a = 236°, d = +59°. Although the orbit is very similar to that determined by radar, the orbital inclination is about 15° greater. 63 Rho Geminids: Antihelion This meteor shower is near the eastern edge of the large “antihelion” radiant, which basically rises in the east as the sun is setting.

94 Theta Coronae Borealids This meteor shower was first announced in 2007, when P. G. Brown, R. J. Weryk, D. K. Wong, and J. Jones (2007) communicated the discovery of 13 new meteor showers using the Canadian Meteor Orbit Radar (CMOR) from 2002 to 2006. 8°. 12 Brown, Wong, Weryk, and P. A. Wiegert (2010) published further results from CMOR, this time using results spanning 2002–2008. 7 km/s. 13 There are some large differences between the orbits published in these two papers. The orbit labeled “2002–2006” is from Brown et al.
