3D animated visualization of meteoroid streams


The International Meteor Organization (IMO) has just added a new feature to their online meteor shower calendar – a 3D animated view of the meteoroid streams the Earth will encounter all along its journey around the Sun.

The model was created by Ian Webster, and will appear for the currently active major meteor shower or the next one to come.

This new 3D experience offers a great way to understand the journey of the meteoroids and the sources of meteor showers on Earth.
