New software for visualization and prediction of meteor showers from space.
Unlike traditional programs, this shows the trajectory of movement of comet dust in the solar system.
See the solar system as a whole, choose the known meteor shower, or follow the earth in its orbit and watch as the earth passes through a cloud of orbital debris.
You can specify a date and change the course of time, slowing down and speeding up the movement. Simulator LINK
Forecast of meteor stream based on your location and date is possible on site.
Quadrantids is the first meteor shower of every year, usually occurring between the last week of December, and January 12. It peaks around January 3 and January 4
Lyrids this meteor shower occurs between April 16 to April 26th of every year and can be seen from the Northern and Southern Hemisphere.
Eta Aquarids, occurs between late April and mid-May, peaking around May 5-6. It is best seen from the Southern Hemisphere, though observers in the Northern Hemisphere can also enjoy a sparser display. Meteoroids in the Eta Aquarids are remnants from Halley’s Comet.
The Perseid meteor shower occurs in mid-August, reaching peak activity around August 11-13. Its radiant point lies in the constellation Perseus and it is associated with the comet Swift-Tuttle.
The Draconid meteor shower, occurs every October, peaking around October 7-8. The name of this shower comes from the constellation Draco the Dragon.

Leonids occur during the month of November, usually peaking around mid-November. It is associated with the comet Tempel-Tuttle and is named after the constellation, Leo.
Geminids and Ursids
The month of December is good for meteor shower watchers, with the Geminids gracing the skies in early December, peaking around December 13-14, and the Ursids that peak around December 22-23. The Geminids owes their name to the constellation Gemini and are the only major meteor shower not associated with a comet, but with an asteroid. Ursids, on the other hand, get their name from the constellation Ursa Minor.
