Day# 51...Return of the Leonids

Name: Leonids
Night at the most: 17-18 Nov 2009
Time to start seeing (approximate) : 100+ (May be up to 500)
Highest rate in Thailand (sun / hour): 100 +
Note : this is very special.

On Nov. 17, 2009, Earth will pass through the 1466 stream again, but this time closer to the center. Based on the number of meteors observed in 2008, Vaubaillon can estimate the strength of the coming display: five hundred or more Leonids per hour during a few-hour peak centered on 21:43 UT.

"Our own independent model of the debris stream agrees," says Cooke. "We predict a sub-storm level outburst on Nov. 17, 2009, peaking sometime between 21:34 and 21:44 UT."
