The Leonids 1998 - perspectives...


The trip report from Daniel Fischer

The very first report out of Mongolia

The first Cosmic Mirror on what happened


Data Analysis:
ALEX'98 results in words and pictures!
IMO's detailled analysis,
IMO's quick analysis

The three best picture sites of the Leonis 1998
I've seen so far are
NASA's summary (with many fine links)
Modra Observatory, Slovakia
(sit down before clicking here!) and
ROTSE, New Mexico

The most entertaining travel report
is certainly Olivier Staiger's from Thailand.

Here are some links relating to the Canadian part of
the Mongolian action:
1, 2, 3, 4, 5.

Here is one on the Australian radar.

And here are three relating to the U.S.(A.F.) part:
55th Space Weather Sqdr. (where the data came together),
S.P. Worden (who represented the U.S.A.F. in Mongolia)
and something on Worden.

Early reports to S&T.
