Re: (meteorobs) Re: 2002 Leonids
Just one small question: I do not understand why the "one day" is so important.
We observed the Leonids in China in last November, and saw the second peak (Asian Peak). The maximum for our local time is just on November 18/19, instead of 17/18. I think that there seems to be no difference on the date. ;)
All the best,
