2017 Meteor Shower Thread

Tonight should be a good night for viewing in the Northeast. Both the Delta Aquarrids and also the Perseid's.

Here is a list of the rest of the peaks for the year. Note the moon will be full for the Perseids peak, so viewing over the next few days might be more ideal.

July 27-28, 2017 Delta Aquariids
August 12 or 13, 2017 Perseids
October 7 or 8, 2017 Draconids
October 21, 2017 Orionids
November 4-5, 2017 South Taurids
November 11-12, 2017 North Taurids
November 17 or 18, 2017 Leonids
December 13-14, 2017 Geminids

Relevant, concise, informative.... And above all, interesting.

Anyone see any of the Taurids? I guess they are rarely many of then, but they are slower moving and can occasionally produce large fireballs. Will be clear here tonight and cold. Will probably take a look.

Geminids coming in HOT. Hoping we get enough break in the clouds to see some. It's going to be cold.
Should be a great show if you can catch it. During the evening hours are best chance of seeing a slow moving meteor that goes across the whole sky. I hope to see one of these some day.

Nice !

Few weeks ago driving 2 hours east on 90 from Boston, saw the nicest greenish fireball I have ever seen,

Was up in the mountain area and dark, really amazing !

You remind this jam, Hot Hot Hot !!!

Was the best meteor shower of my life. (Only for the last 8 years have I lived somewhere that I can go outside and look up and see the milky way easily)

We must have seen 40 total in about 20 minutes, with 10 of them being really bright and/or leaving trails of sparkly dust behind them.
We saw one that was very slow. I was able to say "wow, look at how slow that one is" and it was still visible and moving at the end of my sentence. That one wasn't as bright, but the speed was crazy slow.

You should still be able to see some tonight, just not as many as last night.
