Asteroid hunt review

Last night at the Campus Party, the large gathering of techies from across the 27 EU member countries, an asteroid hunt was carried out. Advertised by post-it note and conducted through a remote telescope a review of events can be found here. The asteroid hunt was part of Global Astronomy Month. For those hoping for a more relaxed hunt for bits of spacebound rock, the Lyrid meteor shower seems to be putting on a few early shows. Last night saw a lot of radio activity and lots of individual meteors were seen including from Kendal. The shower peaks on the 21st/22nd of the month.
