Hi all, my apologies: I'm loaded with man-flu, so I've not had chance to look fully at the results from last nights shower. However, on first glance there appeared to be a broad peak topping out around 160 strikes per hour between midnight and 6am at my site. Here's my heat map of Day/Hour versus Count from last night: Looking at the individual strikes, I see many short duration recordings lasting a second or less, interspersed with long duration events, for example: The data is unfiltered for any artefacts, satellites or noise, but with detection rates that high, it's fairly likely there will be some multiple incoming meteor events that are counted as one event due to the duration of the plasma trail being long enough to mask subsequent strikes.
