Dear all,

We would like to draw your attention to a potential slight meteoric activity enhancement coming from the alpha-Monocerotids meteor shower on November 21st, 2017, around 21 h 26 min UT.
You will find more informationa nd tips regarding this potential event on this page: https://www.imo.net/possible-activity-from-the-alpha-monocerotids-in-2017/

All observations (positive or neg

Dear meteor/Geminids observers,

Here is an interesting view of the Geminids (thanks Tioga for the forward), as we could observe them from the stratosphere! Interesting to see how a meteor behave in real time, from a different point of view. Must be much harder to associate meteors to a defined radiant from there ;-)

Dear meteor observers,

I was having a look at the 2017 IMO Meteor Shower Calendar, and especially looking for activity prospects for the 2017 Perseids maximum, and I read that the forecast ZHR for the Perseid activity peak was 150...
As I do not think any activity enhancement is predicted, I wa sthus wondering why the predicted maximum ZHR was so high for 2017. Does anyone have an explanat

A new forecast for possible activity in 2019 can be found here:
http://feraj.ru/Radiants/Predictions/209p-ids2019eng.html

In short, a small outburst with ZHR up to 10 could be produced by 1939 trail at 7:44 UT on 24 May 2019, and a secondary outburst with ZHR up to 5 due to 1994-2009 trails is possible around 11 UT on 24 May 2019.

Hello all,

We are aware of potentially strong tau-Herculid shower in 2022. However my modelling shows that there are some chances for activity in 2017 on May 30 at 17:24 UT.
I suggest that if any activity appears, it should very low, perhaps, at the level of separate meteors, but their brightness is expected to be high, so even 1-2 such meteors could make a lot of fun. Details are here:

Dear meteor observers,

I just realized, while reading the 2017 IMO Meteor Shower Calendar, that Mikhail Maslov made some predictions about a potential meteoric activity linked to 249P/LINEAR, with potential activity on April 20th, 2017, around 16h 33min UT. Meteoric activity would be associated to small meteoroids, so meteors may be faint, or only radio detectable.
Does anyone (Mikhail, or
