Re: angular speeds of meteor showers

Hi, David -

Thanks for answering, but since you didn't explicitly say so, I have to ask: Norton's Star Atlas and the BAA Handbook give ANGULAR meteor speeds, correct?

Also, I don't suppose you know of any free or inexpensive ONLINE source for this information, do you?

Thanks again.

angular speeds of meteor showers

I have heard the angular speed of meteors variously described as "slow", "medium", "fast", etc., and I know that the angular speed of meteors is sometimes expressed in terms of degrees per second. I have also heard that different meteor showers have characteristic angular speeds associated with them...
