                                                                 Meteor Shower Camelopardalids 24.05.2014

                                                                               Did you know you can not just see meteor showers you can listen to them too ?

                                                 In the Plots below you can see the meteors as they reflect a far away radio source . This is the signal that is received .

                                                                               The white dots and stripes are the Amplitude ( Volume / Intensity ) of the meteors .

                                   The method used is known as forward - scattering , because the meteor reflects the signal from a far away transmitter to a receiver .

                                                                           You can do this " little experiment "  by yourself . We will post more details later on ..........
