Don't miss another meteor shower... receive meteor activity alerts via email! 

This was the first website to offer a live "meteor activity indicator". Now another first! It can offer you "High" or "Very-High" meteor shower activity alerts, (almost) direct via email! 

Two alert levels are available. Please subscribe to both for the fullest alert coverage, or just "Very-High" for only the most extreme events.

 

Subscribe Now!


From 02.07.2007, the alert emails are hosted by Freelists.org.

From 10.06.2008 both high and very-high alerts will be sent to the "alert-h" address. To only receive very-high alerts subscribe ONLY to the vh-alert address.

Select the alert lists you'd like to receive. Enter your email address below, choose the action required and click "Go!" It's that easy! You may also set yourself to "vacation" to temporarily stop receiving mails, or unsubscribe.

BOTH HIGH & VERY HIGH ALERTS:

VERY HIGH ALERTS ONLY:

RRD WEBLOG VIA EMAIL:

As always, the alert service remains completely free.

EMAIL FREQUENCY
When a subscribed-for activity level is triggered, you should receive one alert email. Should that alert level still be active 12 hours later, you will receive another, and again every 12 hours if it continues. 

If you are subscribed to both alert levels, you will get a new email each  time the alert level changes, although you won't receive two emails from the same alert level within 12 hours (in theory!) If the PC the system is operating on gets restarted, a fresh alert may be issued regardless if an alert level is active since the system will have forgotten it!

Should any alert emails be issued in error (due to signal interference or other factors), I'll issue a "False Alert" message, as soon as I can, to whichever levels were triggered. 

The Blog via email has subscribed to it a few automatic alert systems, such as the DX Robot which monitors auroral and sporadic-E amateur radio contacts. By nature, these are intermittent, but are occasionally very active. Also posted there are information and admin. messages from me which are relevant to this website. A small number of messages may contain images or video attachments which could be several MB in size.
 
HOW TO UNSUBSCRIBE
Follow the instructions at the bottom of every alert email, or use the options on this page.
 
NOTE
This system is under constant review. If you start receiving excessive emails from the alert systems, or think that the system has been compromised in some way or not working, please contact me urgently to let me know.
