Hey guys,

This article from space.com says that we may be in for a surprise meteor shower from the direction of the bootids this year:
www.space.com...

The article points out that meteor showers in june are rare. It also references showers that provided earth with shooting stars that could be seen through cloud over... so the writers must think this is going to be a big one!

And, yes, I'm sure the Aussie Bloke believers will enjoy this display....

A better article from Sky and Telescope:
skyandtelescope.com...

It states that this shower MAY OR MAY NOT happen.

Hey...

I see, now, that some of this same info was buried in some of the AB threads... But I don't consider this a repeat thread because many people are just ignoring the AB stuff now and they might be interested in viewing the shower. I posted this as just a tip off for amateur skywatchers.. people who might not want to read through 500 million pages of Aussie bloke stuff...

Thank you O I M D!

I marked my calender for all the dates that we can HOPE to see the Bootids.......my little son and I shall enjoy planning camping out on a high ridge on these occasions. We love to camp and really LOVE to plan camp outs for metoer events.

I will be packing up the hot dogs, smores and the guitar.....we are looking forward to possibly getting to see SOME meteors!


Thanks for this post!

The perpetrators of the AB hoax knew what they were doing, by integrating grains of truth into the hoax.

I'm looking forward to the light show. Should be a good one.

yes thats exactly why so many countries have naval ships in the pacific for naval exercises

thats why the US governement is tanking it economy (i don't know about other governments the US is the one most widely reported)

thats why every news report i hear is fear mongering propaganda

on monday the new privately owned rocket is going to launch using some awesome new cheap energy (rubber and nitrous oxide) - how convenient

interesting how report about Wild-2 comet is just now surfacing about how unsual it is even though that has been known since february

All the earthquakes and tornados and floods - not weather control to squelch civil unrest - no i dont think so.

I am sure they are all preparing for the beautiful meteor shower that is going to be upon us

Hey,

If anyone sights these things could they please provide ATSers with the time, date, and duration of the meteor(s)?

It might be interesting to compare the brilliance of these across the world.

I dunno. I guess the main reason that I'm not worried about it is because if it happens, there's nothing that I can do about it anyway, so why worry? All worrying accomplishes is to give you high blood pressure and excess stomach acid.

I can do without that.

It's generally assumed that the reason that the fed is devaluing the dollar is to soften the blow when the oil prices skyrocket, expected sometime soon.

Can't speak intelligently about the world's navies.

Still, I can't see a good reason to panic, or worry. Most of what AB posted hasn't happened. I think we can safely discount that theory.

Like I said, why worry?

one prediction was that a large batch of meteors would be coming down in a few hours... I hope that, among the entire ATS community, that at least one person sees one of these shooting stars.

Ouizel and Helmutt,

I'm not talking about giant killer asteroids... many astronomers have predicted that we should be able to see an interesting meteor shower this week. I'm not trying to scare anyone.

I have an update for you:

3 meteors
11:25-11:28 Pacific time

all 3 radiating from the North.
1 was yellow-green, 2 were pinkish in color
all were pretty dim.
they seemed slow, with short trails.
Probably due to them heading towards my viewpoint.
Camera wasn't ready yet...
waiting for the cresent moon to set...

I'll be back with more..

about twenty minutes ago (1:40am, Central Time), I was watching the sky in my back yard when I may have seen a very light, very fast*, green trail streaking across the sky. Actually, it was so faded (I had binoculars) that i barely noticed it... so it may have just been a trick of the eye (I am not a veteran meteor shower watcher).

Since i live in the Chicago area, I don't really expect to see any clear meteors tonight. I'm really relying on vicarious reports from you guys.


*these are supposed to be slow meteors, according to those articles, so this observation makes me doubt that I actually saw one.

Anyone else seeing these?
Short, dim trails.
Pinkish color. Maybe temperature related?
I'm seeing them at about 1 every 90 seconds

spacedoubt,

What's your current location? (I hope i didn't miss it somewhere). I fear that us city people will have to live through your reports tonight.

I'm in the high desert in Nevada.
It's very clear, and dark here.
I may have captured one on my digital camera.
Won't know until I dump the memory.

They are very dim though, and not as often after about 12:20.
I'll go back out in a few minutes, to let you know.

space out

Well
Nothing on the camera.

I'm only seeing 1 every 7 minutes or so now.
I'm sure a couple of them were the regular nightly ones.
They were off the radiant. and Brighter.

I'll check in once or twice more, if I don't
fall asleep out there!
