Meteors – 26th May 2005

Neil Bone, director of the British Astronomical Association’s Meteor Section came to talk to us about Meteors. His talk included anecdotes about deck chairs, cameras, cloudy nights, random luck, as well as photographs of meteors, fireballs, comets, noctilucent clouds and Concorde’s after-burner contrail. He rounded off the talk with some fascinating details about the results that have been derived from the systematically recorded observations of thousands of observers, with particular reference to the Leonid meteor maxima between 1996 and 2001.
