Greetings Mr. Roman Jirasek and Fellow Meteorite

To glean information concerning the meteor shower
events for 2003, I would get in touch with the IMO
(International Meteor Organization). Their web site
address is:


Also, I would highly recommend these other web sites
as well:




Although I believe the "peaks" of meteor showers
usually occur around the same dates year after year,
you may still want to get in contact with the kind
people who host the above sites, just in case I have
missed something.

With that said, you and other list members may also
want to post your meteor shower and fireball questions
on our neighbor mailing list:


When it comes to such phenomena and must I say
fireballs, they are the people to ask! They were
right on top of it when the excitement occurred in
reference to the famous Pennsylvanian daylight
fireball last year. Lew Gramer (the list
administrator), or someone else would probably love to
share fireball reports with this list --- ones that
perhaps wouldn't be known to meteorite-list members
otherwise. In fact, this is one of the many reasons I
think both lists should work together in discovering
more about these past fireballs from Europe. Both
meteorite collectors and meteor observers have so much
in common but yet seem to be distinctly different in a
way. To be blunt, I see that as a shame...

Lastly, I immensely agree with Steve Schoner about the
mysterious time of the April 6/7 fireballs. I too,
(like usual) have thought something was strange about
this whole event. Photographic and visual data on
these fireballs from which meteor radiant specialists
can rummage through may come up with some startling
conclusions! Hopefully nobody will let all of this
potential data age and wither away!
Long strewn fields!
