About

My name's Pető Zsolt, I was born in 1976. I work as math and informatic teacher and software developer. I'm interesting about astronomy since my child age and since then I tried out almost every part of amateur astronomy. Actually my favourite parts are theoretical physics, cosmology and meteor astronomy and it's not question: if observations then observing meteors.

My first observations were made in 1992 and til 1995 I could make observations frequently. This period gave me real experience about meteor showers, activity profiles and observing technics.

Since 1996 I didn't make "real" observations, my activity was only "looking around".

One of my dreams was when I made observations to take a photograph of a meteor. I made tons of long exposure shots around 1995 with my film camera, but I had no luck to catch any. In 2011 september I bought a DSLR camera, and it was obvious to turn it to the sky. And finally the dream came true!!! A nice Orionid was photographed at dawn of 02/10/2011. Since then I do observations again... This site is the summary of my newest observations.
