Perseid meteor track

At 23:39 UTC on 12 August 2013, a bright meteor was photographed by three observers and myself. From the images of the meteor, I was able to trace the track of the meteor in the space above our locations. From this, I deduced that:

Location of the upper point:

51.7086N, 1.63627W, 89302m

Location of the lower point:

51.66241N, 1.69994W, 82799m

Standard deviation in the location of the upper point:

East/West: 48m

North/South: 56m

Vertically: 387m


Many thanks to the following people for their help with supplying the data:

Mel Gigg

Steve Knight
