Default Leonids 2004

The usual date for the Leonids is November 17th, however this year the
prediction is that the peak will be around 10pm on November the 19th,
which is a Friday.

Time of maximum expected (ZHR)
2004 Nov 19th 06:42 UTC (10)
2004 Nov 19th 21:49 UTC (~ 65)

Another site advises that any time between the 16th and 20th (Tue to
Sat) could be good. The predictions aren't always correct and you
usually see a number of meteors a few days either side of the peak
anyway.

UTC? Wossat?


From http://www.ghcc.msfc.nasa.gov/utc.html :


"Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) is the international time standard."

Same as GMT as far as I can tell.

Paul will be along shortly to tell you about subtended arcs of
latitude or summat like that.

Damn! Lost another 10 minutes there! I synchronised this damn computer
just a couple of days ago. Battery must be running down. Bloody 1998
technology! Antiquated crap!

Astronomy needs this kind of standardisation, otherwise we'd get really
confused!


Astronomers might - but we're not star gazers so familiar terms will do
best.
