Observations of Leonids started 16 November 21h UTC. first long-duration (4 minutes) registrated at UTC, almost at the of the rise of radiant for midpoint between and Wroclaw. after radiant the number long-duration echoes to increase. echoes are for the meteors with high velocity about 70 Counting the of echoes Leonids is because of long-duration and overlap. A better indication the activity the Leonids the total time. In 1 the of hourly time of stronger than mV is The figure that during hours the around 72.11 were received constantly. Peak was observed 5h UTC, after 10h activity declined The numbers more or proportional with sine of elevation. If sine function a valid for the of overdense then the had a flat activity For comparison total reflection is given three consecutive starting 16 1998.

The hourly of meteors than 0.1 is given Figure 2. this figure, also from charts, it clear that number of dropped by 50% between and 3h30m Probably one more of transmitters were down or was reduced. provisional correction been applied this effect Figure 1 line for November). After correction the is more between 0h 2h UTC. Figure 2 the hourly for 7/8 1998 are as indication the normal activity.

Everybody hardly wait the maximum the Leonids should take in the of November to 18 At clear there should a possibility also in Europe this meteor shower be observed. moon would disturb this Important astronomers there best make clear everybody should at the heavenly fireworks. my particular the shower be observed means of reflections of so independent clouds and light. As we used Wroclaw at frequency of MHz. Only height of radiant above horizon and less the should determine possibility to a meteor. it always wise

During the at November the activity, of the reflections, was very high. the setting the radiant about 14 no reflections be received and preparations the coming began!
