TAU HERCULID Meteor Shower Live

If all goes well we may get as many as 1000 Meteors per hour over the next few days. I'm setting up the Meteor Fence looking towards Toronto, and at night I will have a wide angle, long exposure camera on an equatorial mount to try to capture the streaks. We'll start running this today and through the night for the next 48 hours. Make sure you check out the video I did on tracking the ISS and finding its altitude and speed... https://youtu.be/6k-J1XhTOOQ As a meteor rips through the upper atmosphere at a height of 60-100 miles, it leaves a trail of ionized gases that persist briefly. Those gases reflect the radio signals and I receive them with my directional antenna. They appear as strong vertical lime green lines that stand out from the background 'snow'. The fuzzy horizontal lines are atmospheric, the meteors and bright and sharp vertical lines. If you would like a more detailed explanation with examples see https://youtu.be/jpcn_G7LTHE This presentation is not a discussion, it simply gives the same raw data I see for you to observe yourself. I'll be making a presentation video on the meteor fence going over all this on ResearchFlatMoon in the coming week. I'll stream the fence from evening to morning, as meteors are most frequent from Midnight to about 11 or 12 later that morning (why? does it have to do with the rotation and orbit of the earth???). Later I will stream the two radio telescopes in the Shamrock Banks Observatory for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy.
