Electronic visual report form

Introduction

The form below validates and submits data for entry in the IMO visual meteor database and the creation of ZHR activity graphs. For instructions on filling out a visual report form, please consult the observing instructions and the instructions for filing a report. In addition, read through the hints for the electronic form.

To submit a large number of intervals, you may customize the number of rows in the form (click the link) or simply submit multiple forms.

Observed number of meteors per period and per shower. Use short periods in case of shower maxima or outbursts (e.g. 5 minuts).
(M: observing method (C(ounting), P(lotting), R (meteor coordinates estimated directly) or "-" (shower not observed during the period))
(N: number of meteors observed).
Try to define periods as to comprise no more than 20 meteors in line.
