Meteor Detections - August 2109

Recommended Posts


Meteor Detections - August 2019


My detector has only been running for part of the month and only really been stable since the 19th Aug (that's when I mostly stopped messing with it!)

Some times of the captures this month may vary by an hour as I was using BST but now changed to GMT but any duplication in numbers have been removed.

Future reports should contain a full months data.


Total detections (August 19th-31st):  3410

Many detections are very short pings with a duration of less than 5, some are far longer.

Many of the shorter detections have a higher (brighter) signal/noise ratio than the longer ones.


Meteor detctions per day: Meteors per day = Highest 372/Day



Meteor detections: Meteors vs Hour (rates seen rather than every detection) = Highest 35/Hr



Meteor detections:  Duration vs Hour. (duration levels seen rather than every detection) =Longest Duration 132




A selection of the longest duration detections during the month.


My trace scrolls down covering 60s and is zoomed in to capture more detail in the image.

The image that shows dur 111 is actually the one at 132 in the chart, but it ran off the screen.
