Subject: (meteorobs) Draconids visibility map

Hi all,

I plotted a simple "visibility map" for the Draconids radiant tonight using
the fabulous Python programming language (+ the popular libraries "PyEphem"
and "Matplotlib"):

( from http://www.imo.net/draconids2011 )

I thought it would be fun to promote Python by sharing the source code use
to create this map (just 50 lines!):

Please do point out any mistakes :-)

Geert
