George Gliba
George Gliba was born in Cleveland, Ohio in 1948, and lived in the small town of Chagrin Falls, (20 miles SE of Cleveland) before moving to Maryland in 1979 to work at the NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center. His love of astronomy began with a fireball sighting during a 1959 camping trip. His first meteor shower observation was the 1961 Perseids, seeing 59 meteors in three hours. George has been a true mainstay with the AMS, having joined back in 1963. Only a year later, in '64, George had plotted over 500 meteors in 57.65 hours. In 1967 he had his best Perseid rates ever, at 103 per hour.
As George joined the USAF in the late '60s, through the mid-70s - as an Aerospace Control & Warning Operator - his meteor observations waned considerably. He began observing again during the 1986 Eta Aquarids for the International Halley Watch. He has continued to be quite active since that time. His best meteor shower hourly rate (not ZHR) was the 2001 Leonids, when he saw 750 Leonids and 6 sporadics in one hour from Mathias, West Virginia. That same night, he estimated the magnitude of 1,681 meteors in four hours. "A difficult but rewarding task, especially the last hour! In 1998, he saw 23 Leonid fireballs in 3 hours and 15 minutes, from the slopes of Mauna Kea, Hawaii, which he stated was ".an unforgettable experience! No doubt!
George is also interested in variable stars, comets, and deep-sky observing. He has seen 30 supernovae, 76 comets, and 16 novae along with all of the Messier Objects and many Herschel Objects. George has 14 telescopes, including a 20-inch Dobsonian with wife Lynne Gilliland, who is also an avid amateur astronomer.
...
George is currently a Senior Technical Specialist at the NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, Maryland, where he has worked as a contractor on several satellite projects since 1979. He has been employed with the company SP Systems Inc. since 2000. He also enjoys collecting meteorites, Natural History, bicycling and Buddhism.

The next year, Mr. Gliba saw his first Perseid meteor shower, and every mid-August since then, his routine has been the same.Next month, the Greenbelt resident and data archivist at Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt will make it 32 years in a row when he drags his lawn chair outside to see the Perseids.He'll have company all over the area.Experienced astronomers, professional and amateur, are familiar with the Perseids - an annual meteor shower that appears to spring out of the constellation Perseus, giving it its name.But when the Perseids reach their peak, some time early in the morning on Aug. 12, they probably will be watched by more than just astronomy buffs.

Mr. Gliba recommends a place like Virginia's Skyline Drive, noting that the Big Meadows Lodge area has been a popular place for stargazers in the past.Mr. O'Brien cautions skywatchers to stay away from trees as much as possible because they need to see as much of the sky as they can."It sounds like a common-sense thing, but sometimes people are in such a hurry to find a dark spot like a forest that they forget the trees will block out the sky as much as the light," he says.
