Meteor Watch

David North

Only one semi-shower on the list this month: the June Bootids.

This shower is not in the current IMO working list of visual meteor showers, but in 1997 an apparent outburst of activity occurred on June 27.

Despite coinciding with a full moon, a watch for their possible re-occurence may be worthwhile for 1999.

Concentrate on the hours between sunset on the 27th and 1am the next morning. The U.S. East coast may get the best shot... These meteors would appear verrry slow at 19 km/s.

Radiant: RA 14h 56m, Dec. +58.
