Is anyone hoping for clear skies tonight, so they can get a look at the Perseid meteor shower? I've seen these on odd occasions in the past and it's worth the effort. The main show will be from 2am to 4am in the UK, looking North, but I've seen Perseids at other times, so you don't have to miss a night's kip.

We're going for a late night walk tonight, to get away from the sodium lights. Last night it just rained.

Yesterday was the peak, but the Perseids can be seen any night around the maximum.

IIRC, from when I was an active radio ham, people with nothing better to do bounce radio signals off the ionised trails left by the meteors.

^^^ The radio waves go further. Whereas with VHF most people manage to communicate over 20 miles, and a few people with good locations and expensive equipment manage 500 miles, with meteor scatter it is possible to communicate over 1500 miles. Just...in...very...short...bursts.

Then there are the guys with really good equipment and nothing better to do, who bounce their signal off the moon and manage 10,000 miles.

It was cloudy here at peak times last night.
Could vaguely make out where the moon was behind the clouds but that was it.

And other people with nothing better to do listened to those people doing similar things, just to find out what nature would allow that night.

@thud419, you'll probably appreciate this link: Echos of Apollo. One group I'm aware of worked EME on 3mW.

@ all, Spaceweather.com is a good site to visit for information on near Earth and solar phenomena.

Just as we were turning in late last night, the wife announced that there were clear patches in the sky. We spent the next hour standing in a field at the top of our street.

Final score after it clouded over again, Roy 5 meteors, Hayley 1. She blames her glasses, but if your not looking at exactly the right bit of sky, you see nothing. Finally we went to bed.

I love the complete silence of it all, really you expect them to go 'woosh'.

I saw my first fireball last night, it lasted about 1.5-2 full seconds. It ended with a nice flare at the end, next to an eclipse (solar or lunar), it has to be one of the coolest things I have seen in the sky.

I can't see them anymore, but I remember seeing one like PF describes. It lasted long enough for me to point it out so others could see it. This was in the very rural area around Julian, CA - beautiful clear autumn night with no city lights around. We were attending a two-hour astronomy class. I almost thought I could hear a sizzle from it.

I went out with the military boy and his lovely girlfriend last night with my Skyscout. I had printed out some satellite passes from Heavens-Above.com. The sky was too polluted to see anything other than Jupiter and a handful of stars.

The military boy just turned 21 so he wants to lose $20 in a gambling experience. I hope he does not win anything and get addicted. I'm driving him to a casino so we should be able to see something tonight on the way back.
