Great Balls of Fire
I feel kind of guilty about trying to get everyone excited last week about the Sky Live Ison Tracker map, only for Ison to meet the fate shared by everyone who flies too close to the Sun.
In compensation let me point you instead to this map of 2013 Meteor Sightings put together by the Montreal Gazette. The Gazette used Fusion Tables to map data from the American Meteor Society. The AMS tracks meteor sightings around the world. The map shows more sightings in the USA than elsewhere around the globe as the society's members live mainly in the US.
