The October 2010 column describes methods for sketching and annotating a meteor shower observation. Also featured in the article were beautiful sketches of the Perseids by Roel Weijenberg and Juanchin. Unfortunately there was not enough room for Deirdre Kelleghan’s excellent sketch. All three are shown below. Thanks to Roel, Juanchin and Dee for allowing me to post them here.
