SteamRoLLer's Meteor Showers

International Meteor Organization with Meteor Shower Calendar

A Nice Astronomy Site


Meteors are generally better seen after midnight and before dawn due to the Earth's rotation.

Also check the lunar phase, ideally the moon should not be up.

The above table of meteor showers is adapted from the Working List of Visual Meteor Showers, courtesy of the International Meteor Organization (IMO). ZHR is a theoretical number of meteors seen at the zenith (overhead). ZHR = Zenith Hourly rate and indicates the general (optimum) number of meteors that may be seen per hour. "Code" is the abbreviation for the shower that observers should use when reporting meteor observations.

The predicted ZHR for showers is worst than weather predictions. Your best bet is to visit the IMO site above for the latest data. The table above does NOT have all showers listed. The ZHR numbers in the ~old table are a bit oppomistic. The bold showers in the table are usually nice meteor showers.
