How long should the meteor shower be going on?

No Comments 29 January 2014

Question by Jordyn: How long should the meteor shower be going on?
Don’t shoot this down as a stupid question. Yes, I know they are out mid august every year, but last year they continued after the main one for a while.
My main question is, will there still be some meteors next weekend? I have an event to be at where it would be nice to go see them with my group.

Answer by campbelp2002
The Perseid meteor shower peaks on the new-Moon night of Sunday–Monday, August 12–13.

The Perseids have a broad peak. So don’t despair if clouds are forecast for Sunday night — or if work obligations prevent you from staying up until dawn on Monday.

The meteor rate increases to roughly 30 per hour in the predawn hours on Saturday, 45 per hour on Sunday morning, and 80 per hour before the sky starts to get light on Monday morning. That’s for a single observer at a dark-sky site in the north temperate latitudes.

On any given night, activity starts slowly in the evening but picks up by 11 p.m., when the radiant gets reasonably high in the sky. The meteor rate increases steadily through the night as the radiant rises higher, peaking just before the sky starts to get light, roughly 1½ to 2 hours before sunrise.

For the most pleasant viewing experience, find a spot far from any city lights. Perseids tend to be relatively bright as meteors go, but you’ll still see more the darker your skies are. Bring a reclining chair so that you can view high in the sky in comfort; there’s no point in filling half your field of view with trees. Don’t forget warm, mosquito-proof clothes or, better, a sleeping bag. No matter how hot the days are, it can get surprisingly chilly under a clear sky late at night, especially whan you’re inactive. And for many people, the most important accessory is bug spray for the parts of you that remain exposed!

It doesn’t really matter where in the sky you watch; meteors can appear anywhere. Just watch where it’s darkest, usually straight up. It’s probably best not to stare directly at the radiant, because meteors there leave short trails.

Coach and Minibus Conversion Specialists, PH Conversions, Launch New Website and Offer New Services

No Comments 29 January 2014


Manchester, Lancashire (PRWEB) January 28, 2014

The coach conversions firm was founded in February 2013 by Managing Director, Paul Hegedus.

The minibus conversion specialists are based at a well-equipped garage in Newton Heath, Manchester.

The PH Conversions team is made up of six skilled and experienced staff who have soon helped make the ambulance conversion business a success.

PH specialise in commercial vehicle conversions.

Services include: Taxi conversions, wheelchair accessible vehicle conversions and luxury minibus conversions.

In addition, the Newton Heath business also converts coaches and now provides an ambulance conversion service.

We provide a wide and varied range of services. We aim to please and always have the customers best interests at heart, said Paul.

We take enormous pride in all of our conversions and everything we do is aimed to accommodate the customers needs. Once we receive a new enquiry (or before starting a new project), we like to meet face-to-face (if possible) and discuss different designs and layouts for the vehicles interior and exterior, he added.

When Paul was asked what separates PH Conversions from the competition?

He answered, We are one of the most versatile commercial vehicle conversion companies in the UK. We provide almost all the services required. Our work is of the highest quality and we dont skimp on any materials used. The industry is very competitive but we refuse to be drawn in to using sub-standard materials to allow us to be more competitive.

PH Conversions trade nationally and locally.

Wherever possible we collect a customers vehicle and return it after the conversion, said Mr. Hegedus.

The Company has recently been awarded the ISO 9001:2008 Certificate of Registration and the COP Compliance certificate.

The new website has been designed and built by local web design company, Vizcom Design.

The platform used is the industry standard for CMS (Content Management System) websites, WordPress.

This type of website allows the user to create new pages, alter text and add images.

We have enjoyed working on this one as Paul was open to our ideas and already had an understanding of why a website appears in the search engine rankings, said Dan Robinson, founder of Vizcom Design.

Before we even begin to design a site, we recommend conducting keyword research. This information tells us what people are looking for in relation to the customers business. We then recommend choosing a suitable domain name which will help the site appear in the Google search results. We decided upon coachandminibusconversions.co.uk, added Dan.

The site is branded using PHs logo and features a rotating banner which advertises PHs services and unique selling points. A call back form has been added (top right) to make it easier for customers to contact PH Conversions out of working hours, explained Mr. Robinson.

Vizcom were recommended to us by the person who built our database. I also looked at who they had worked for before and decided to call them. After the first conversation, I decided to use them and employ their search engine services too, said Paul.

.

We hope to generate enquiries and customers from the new site and the feedback received has already been positive, added Paul.

A new ambulance conversion section has been added and this has been created to promote our new service and hopefully generate more leads. It is early days but we have had a few enquiries already. The site is fifth for minibus conversions and I hope Dan and his team can make sure we are top three for the phrase ambulance conversions, explained Paul.

.

We convert most types of ambulances including: Patient transport vehicles, emergency vehicles and mobile intensive care units. We build to BSEN 1789:2007+A1:2012 (CEN) standard, ended Paul.
