Draconids 2018 meteor shower

From the APA-LAN observatory it was possible to record a nice meteor outburst last night, this was confirmed also from IMO members who posted some pictures of the event.
In the images that follow is possible to compare the last past 5 days until the Draconids peak.

The presence of vertical lines is very clear in the last part of our 24 hours spectrogram (lightblue oval shape), what is not for the previous 4 days.

We can even see that on the day before the peak there is a decrease in the number of events (yellow).
For the Draconids We report a peak of about 300 echoes but in this number are included the background events, moreover not many iperdense echoes where detected.

At the end of the page some of the best captures of the Draconids shower outburst.
