Gamma Aquarids
« on: 11:44:00, 09 September, 2004 »
I just checked (http://comets.amsmeteors.org/meteors/calendar.html)  and it seems the meteors I saw last night were the Gamma Aquarids, whose maximum was supposed to be 7/8 September.

Anyone else see any?

I saw a meteor in the general vacinity of casseopeia the night before last (7th) brief, but very bright (must have been or I wouldn't have seen it!)  It would have been about 1am ish so the 8th really.  I quite often sit back and stare at the sky while my cam's shooting.  Amazing how much stuff you see moving around up there.

I saw about 7 or 8 during last night's session - One straight through Polaris! Couldn't capture any, though, as I was doing PF work...
