Been running the Graves meteor setup for a number of days over the past couple of weeks to "see" what is reported to be the best of the daylight meteor showers, the Arietids.

Pleased to report that I wasn't disappointed.  Although the setup wasn't running for the exact same periods over the observation times, the results seem to confirm the max around the 7th June.

Individual rates from the observation sessions are, 

23 May, 190 meteors in 13 hrs ~ 15/hr   

01 June, 290 meteors in 15 hrs ~ 20/hr   

07 June, 140 meteors in 4 hrs ~ 35/hr 

08 June, 304 meteors in 10 hrs ~ 30/hr

09 June, 188 meteors in 9 hrs ~ 21/hr

Chart of results here-


Anyone else been busy?

Good results!  It is an interesting period with a number of overlapping daytime showers. 

My results show peaks on different days depending on which of the (3) antennas I am using and where they are pointing. countD1_acc.thumb.jpg.537c8b2bd0b9af7505693f70a78d10d7.jpgcountD2_acc.thumb.jpg.9e4efee8457edd5bc1d15b5a716e78ff.jpgCountSP_acc.thumb.jpg.c2daf7b499fc6faa6b1f257f1715803b.jpg
