====7. Weak Meteor Shower
March 28-29?
----------------------------------
Peter Jenniskens of the SETI Institute and NASA Ames Research Center; and J. Vaubaillon, Institut de Mecanique Celeste et de Calcul des Ephemerides, Paris, report that, in the wake of the close 0.0356-AU approach of comet 252P to the earth on Mar. 21, it is possible that a new meteor shower will appear on Mar. 28 and 29. A standard model was developed by integrating the orbit of the comet back to A.D. 1850 and ejecting dust at each perihelion passage since that time. After forward-integrating these particles to March 2016, it was found that at no time this year are the densest dust trail sections in the earth's path. Instead, a diffuse cloud of perturbed meteoroids ejected during 1894-1926 is calculated to be in the earth's path between Mar. 28.0 and 29.417 UT. Dust ejected in 1921 is predicted to peak Mar. 28.5 and 28.958 UT, respectively), while dust from 1915 would peak at March 28.75. Slow meteors will radiate from a geocentric radiant at R.A. = 5h08m, Decl. = -16.3°, with velocity 11.1 km/s.
Rates will be low.

E hoje tivemos uma estréia, a primeira órbita da Estação Dante (administrador Marcos Calil). A estação está instalada no Colégio Dante Alighieri em São Paulo, capital, e faz parte do projeto Cientista Aprendiz.
O meteoro em questão foi um representante de um radiante de nossos céus Austrais, um Delta Mensidas (DME), a declinação do radiante do meteoro foi de simplesmente -83, praticamente proveio do Polo Celeste Sul. O radiante DME foi descoberto por observações em rádio em 1969 e existe pouca informação observacional direta sobre ele.
Foi um belo meteoro, que deixou um traço longo (4.6 segundos) de magnitude -1.3. Seu provável corpo parental é o cometa Pons of 1804 (C/1804 E1), apesar que a questão ainda está em aberto.
O belo meteoro foi triangulado com a estação HAL, localizada também em São Paulo, capital (administradora Amanda Martins)

2016 The THIRD Year of "CERTAIN Uncertainty" ™ / Meteors, Asteroids, Comets, and MORE!!

New asteroid discovery 2016 EF195: 15,000 miles from Earth's surface

reported by  meteordetective

Things seem to be picking-up rapidly!

NASA NEOP has just posted details of asteroid 2016 EF195 which made its close-approach at just 15,558 miles from Earth's surface on 11-Mar-2016 at 03Z52.

2016 EF195 is estimated to be 20m - 50m in diameter (based on magnitude) and travelling at 10km/s  or 6.25 mi/s.  It's close-approach brought it beneath geo-stationary satellite altitude of ~22,236 miles.  It was not detected until 4 days after its close-approach.

It is the 4,881st asteroid (within 0.5 AU) to be discovered in the first two weeks of March 2016 (NASA period "E") and the 34th asteroid discovery of 2016 period "E" to approach within 10LD or less.

2016 EF195 is the 2nd asteroid within a month (the other was 2016 DY30) to make its close-approach below geo-stationary satellite altitude.

Keep your cameras ready and your eyes on the skies (when it's safe to do so).

17-Mar-2016: Large bolide seen across the UK

As reported earlier today, by UK Meteor Observation Network:
reported by  meteordetective
"Very large fireball reported by public was first noticed by our Church Crookham station at 3:16 this morning. It momentarily overloaded the camera with light and with second video we will be able to triangulate and calculate the orbit soon."

Please visit their webpage to view multiple views of the bolide, which was captured by cameras across the UK - including the Natural History Museum in London.

The Daily Mirror reports that the bolide might have been observed from Germany, too.  BBC, amongst others, are reporting on the bolide too.

Meteorites may have been produced.  Stay tuned for updates from UKMON - regarding trajectory.
