PREVIEW of 144 MHz-Activities for the upcomming METEOR-Showers

UPCOMING METEOR SHOWERS: JULY 2014

Shower activity in July is concentrated around the end of the month. Most remarkable shower this month is Southern δ-Aquariids, peaking July 30. This medium-ZHR shower is characterized by relatively faint meteors, but its maximum can be quite broad, leading to similar ZHR from July 28th to 30th. For European observers, the Radiant of this shower is above horizon only in night/early morning hours.

Some minor showers are also active around the end of July: Piscis Austrinids can be used for MS predominantly from the Southern Emisphere, while α-Capricornids is characterized by bright meteors with low apparent velocity, that make this shower one of the most spectacular to observe visually.

Take also advantage of very good Sporadic Meteors rates: Sporadics rates are now approaching annual maximum, which will take place in late summer.



For Radio Observers, the (Theoretical) UT peaks for upcoming showers in July 2014 are as follows:

Piscis Austrinids (Southern emisphere shower)
Active: July 15 August 10
Maximum: July 28 (λsol= 125)
ZHR: Low (5 hr-1)

Southern δ-Aquariids
Active: July 12 August 23
Maximum: July 30 (λsol= 127)
ZHR: Medium (16 hr-1)

α-Capricornids
Active: July 03 August 15
Maximum: July 30 (λsol= 127)
ZHR: Low (5 hr-1)
