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.

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.

How can a wheelchair-bound college student travel Asia with her American friend? Ideas?

1 Comment 29 January 2014

Question by yilingonly: How can a wheelchair-bound college student travel Asia with her American friend? Ideas?
Hi! I am a 20-year-old from Asia who has not known the limitlessness of life until I met Tif, an outdoor American girl who brought me on bike rides and donkey rides. I have never travelled without my parents but would like to do so within the next year. Any suggestions?

Several issues include: wheelchair accessibility, accessible bathroom, backpacking tools, light-weight mobility equipments, options for transportation, cost? We have considered Japan, Thailand, Vietnam, China, and the Philippines… but we don’t know if it is too difficult for us.

Also, what can we do to get sponsors and people to help? We’re thinking of putting together an inspirational program and both of us can speak to inspire the local people. Please suggest!!!

Electric Bikes to Keep Dominating Light Electric Vehicle Sales, According to New IDTechEx Report Published at MarketPublishers.com

No Comments 29 January 2014


London, UK (PRWEB) January 28, 2014

The global light electric vehicles (LEV) sector is witnessing robust growth; actually, it is the most fastest-growing segment of the overall electric vehicles market. The highest growth rates are registered in China. Until recent years, ebike sales were concentrated in the EU, Japan and China. However, during the past few years almost every nation has bought the Chinese ebikes, and in certain cases in rather large volumes. Ebikes are and will remain the most popular LEVs, and their annual sales are poised to be estimated nearly 130 million up to 2025, enabling it to become the largest industry worldwide. Currently, throttle-controlled bikes are in high demand worldwide. A substantial part of ebikes sold annually belong to scooters.

Large large bicycle companies are expected to face fierce competition and even be pushed aside by motorcycle, car and auto parts making companies. Asian countries, particularly Taiwan, China, Japan and South Korea, are deemed to have huge growth potential owing to the presence of strong supply chains for nearly every LEV/LEV component in these geographies.
