Hi. I just joined the IMO today. I have been sporadically observing meteors for ~40 years (visual). I'm wondering if the old observations are useful to the IMO and whether I should add them as visual observations. I have records since the late 1990s - about 50 observations (I have yet to find my old observing records book - too many house moves). Historically I sent them to the NAMN. Your thoughts?

John,

Your observations from the southern hemisphere would be very valuable, no matter how old they are. Unfortunately the NAMN site is currently down and your data is unavailable. You should not experience any such problems with the new IMO website. We all would look forward to seeing your data!

John,

It is likely your observations are already in the VMDB as I forwarded all NAMN observations to the IMO. Observations were also archived locally, so I can provide you with your data if you like.

Best wishes,

Dear John,

Welcome to the IMO !!!
I just checked in the VMDB, and as stated by Mark, your observations are already recorded! If you want to have a look, here they are: http://www.imo.net/members/imo_vmdb/observer/1617

Thanks again for subscribing to the IMO!
And looking forward to reading about new observing sessions coming from the Southern hemisphere ;-)

Clear skies!
Karl
