13. Atmospheric heights of telescopic meteors

  • L. Kohoutek (a1)

Extract

The heights of sporadic telescopic meteors were observed from three stations, distant from each other 9·1, 6·0 and 3·2 km respectively, during the meteor expedition in the summer of 1960 (Kohoutek, 1967). Three teams of four observers gathered individually data on 1187 meteors, together with 1864 drawings, during the period of 7 nights, August 15–27. Altogether, 189 pairs observed by at least two stations were identified from the complete material. The heights of the respective beginning (b), centre (c) or end (e) points of 159 pairs were determined by means of graphic-numerical analysis.
