Remote Meteor Station
The main operational goal of the project it to establish a decentralized science-grade instrument which observes the night sky every night of the year from as many locations around the world as possible.
The science goals of the project are the following:
- Providing the meteor community with near real-time awareness of near Earth meteoroid environment by publishing orbits of all observed meteors from all around the globe every morning.
- Observing meteor showers, computing their flux, mass indices and orbits to constrain meteor shower prediction models.
- Observing meteorite producing fireballs to increase the number of meteorites with know orbits (only ~50 circa 2021, more info: http://www.meteoriteorbits.info/) and help constrain meteorite source regions.
