Sucesso !

Segundo report de Jakub Algol Koukal as estações LSA1 e AAC1, em Minas Gerais, conseguiram capturar um meteoro do mais novo radiante descoberto (em 14 setembro de 2015), os Chi Cygnideos (CCY).

Parabéns a Joao Amancio (administrador estação LSA) e Alcione Da Anunciação Caetano (Administradora estação AAC1) !

Abaixo o report da descoberta da nova chuva:

P. Jenniskens, SETI Institute, reports the detection of an outburst from a new Jupiter-family comet shower, the chi Cygnids (given IAU number 757 and abbreviation CCY). Martin Breukers and Carl Johannink first noticed five
nearly identical orbits in multi-station video observations of the CAMS BeNeLux network in the observing interval Sept. 14d19h23m-15d03h35m UT.

Partial results from the CAMS California network add four meteors in the observing interval Sept. 15d03h10m-15d12h45m. The nine meteors detected appeared between Sept. 14d21h and 15d11h UT (solar longitude171.54-172.08 deg).

The geocentric radiant is at R.A. = 301.0 +/- 2.2 deg, Decl. =+32.6 +/- 1.6 deg (equinox 2000.0), with velocity v_g = 15.1 +/- 0.9 km/s. The median orbital elements are (N = 9): q = 0.949 +/- 0.003 AU, a = 2.75 +/- 0.40 AU, e = 0.655 +/- 0.041, i = 18.6 +/- 1.6 deg, Peri. = 209.9 +/-1.9 deg, Node = 171.64 +/- 0.23 deg (equinox 2000.0).

Confirmation of the outburst was found in the near-real time CMOR radar observations (P. Brown et al., University of Western Ontario), which are posted at website URL

The 24-hr averaged maps showed a small concentration of radiants at this position during the observing period 15d05h15m-15d20h15m UT.
