Annual Arietid meteor shower peaks June 7 2009

Space Weather News for June 5, 2009:

DAYTIME METEORS: The annual Arietid meteor shower peaks on Sunday, June 7. The Arietids are unusual because they are daytime meteors; they stream out of a point in the sky not far from the sun.

The best time to look is just before dawn on Sunday morning when it may be possible to spot a small number of Arietids skimming the top of Earth’s atmosphere. Such “Earthgrazing” meteors tend to be long, colorful, and very pretty.

After daybreak, when the meteors are no longer visible to the human eye, you can listen to radar echoes from the Arietids by tuning in to our online meteor radar.

“The Arietids are the strongest daylight shower of the year,” notes Bob Lunsford of the American Meteor Society. “If you could see them through the sun’s glare, you would count as many as 60 per hour. Also, don’t forget that the daytime Zeta Perseids peak only two days later and are considered the second strongest daylight shower. In all my years of viewing I have never seen a Zeta Perseid, but I have seen a few Arietids. They have all been Earthgrazers and very impressive meteors.”

Now this celestial happening should be quite groovy!

“There are two lasting bequests we can give our children: One is roots, the other is wings.” Teaching children values and giving them the opportunity to excel are essential to good parenting. However, I feel I must also provide my children (and myself) insight into the ones who came before us: our ancestors whose lives and stories have shaped us into who we are. This is my journey; these are their stories…
