 "Roar of the Dragon!"

Paul Gray


Each year Earth encounters a stream of meteroids left behind by comet 21P/Giacobini-Zinner. Most years the result is a minor meteor shower but on several occasions in the last century there have been outburst with ZHR's in the 100's to 1000's of meteors seen visually. In 2018 several predictions were for a possible outburst and Nova Scotia was lucky to be clear for the best part of the evening and had a front row seat that rewarded those who went out to watch. This mini talk will discuss the a bit of the history and what was observed this year.

 ALL WELCOME!


Treats will be provided for the social time that follows the meeting.
