The year 1995 in images and words
This year is surely one of the best years ever. It started well with the Quadrantids. Together with the Delphinus team I could observe meteors during 12 hours in the night of 3/4 January. Temperatures dropped to -8 degrees Celsius. In the evening low numbers of Quadrantids, but in the last 4 hours of the night hourly rates went up to above 100. Some fireballs were seen. It was the first succesfull campaign from our new location at Biddinghuizen.

The Perseids were spoiled by moonlight and around the maximum it was mostly cloudy. But in late July and early August, we had seven clear nights in a row. So, we had nice view of the southern summer streams and the upcoming Perseid activity. Location: Biddinghuizen.


Picture 3: Sporadic firball captured by all sky camera EN-98 (22 may 1995).

Casper and I built some new camera arrays to use for the upcoming Leonid expedition to Spain. We tested the new equipment with the Orionids. The nights 20/21 and 21/22 oktober were clear, we observed at the location Biddinghuizen. Due to very clear sky's we saw many Orionids including a bright -3. Highlight however was a -5 Leo Minorid with a persistent train of 3 minutes!

Another great campaign were the Leonids. Team Delphinus was part of a bigger DMS expedition in the south of Spain. There we had a good view on that years Leonid outburst (ZHR-35-40). This outburst was caused by the filament structure of Comet 55P/Tempel-Tuttle and consisted of bright Leonids up to magnitude -3. And some day's later we also witnessed the famous alpha Monoceotid outburst (ZHR 500-600).
