ACM 1999 meeting

6th circular to members of the IAU C-22 Pro-Am Working Group

Date: July 10, 1999

Workshop "The Leonids: slides and guides", Wednesday July 28, 14-17:00
Harvard Room, Statler Hotel, Ithaca, NY

This year's Asteroids Comets, Meteors meeting at Cornell University, Ithaca, New York, is a new opportunity to strengthen the bonds between amateur and professional meteor observers. As proposed by IAU C-22 Pro-Am Working Group member Jim Richardson, and supported by IAU C-22 president Jack Baggaley, we will meet for an ACM Workshop in the Harvard Room of the Statler Hotel on Wednesday July 28, between 14:00 and 17:00 local time.

The workshop will be a show and tell of recent projects that involve the participation of amateur observers. Many such projects occurred during the recent Leonid shower. Hence, we chose as a title "The Leonids: slides and guides". We welcome more informal reports on last year's campaigns, which did not get sufficient time in the main program, with an emphasis on plans for the upcoming Leonid campaign. We will have various audiovisual means to our disposal. We also welcome reports of other ongoing activities, such as the fireball networks, the forward meteor scatter networks, and other activities that involve amateur meteor observers. The talks are open to both professional and amateur observers.

If you would like to make a presentation during this workshop, please contact me at e-mail: I will prepare an agenda.
