Perseids shower peaks tonight #meteorwatch

The Perseids meteor shower peaks tonight (sometime between 01h and 13h UT Aug 13th, probably nearer to 06h UT). If the sky is clear, the moon will be strong, thereby limiting visual observations.

The G7IZU RRD system is active monitoring radio signal reflections from the fireball trails. It’s registering Perseids fireballs now! You can view the live receiver output here, or see the last 200 detected events here on Flickr.
