Next Generation Meteor Camera Systems

If you have an interest in meteors, fireballs or meteorites you’ve landed on the right place!

Over a period of almost 10 years, we have created an integrated hardware, software and network system specifically designed for capturing scientific observations of fireballs and meteors. Our systems are built with low cost computers, HD Low Light Sony Starvis (starlight) IP cameras and custom designed and manufactured PCB boards, wires and housing. Our software been written from the ground up and utilizes Linux, OpenCV, FFMpeg, Python and other open source software, to make a fireball tracking system that is...

affordable
Starting at as low as $700.
effective
You'll catch meteors, we guarantee it.
automated
Once it's running, you don't have to touch it anymore.
easy to use
Make it work in less than 1 hour.

Goals

Our integrated systems have been built with several goals in mind:

  1. Reduce the cost and barriers of entry associated with obtaining and operating meteor cameras
  2. Collect scientifically calibrated observations of meteors in high resolution with high frames per second
  3. Link all systems together with a central network to enable automatic sharing and solving of observational data
  4. Enhance the American Meteor Society and the International Meteor Organization fireball catalog with hard astrometric, and photometric data that results in precise trajectory, velocity, size and orbital estimates for fireball meteor events
  5. Utilize inexpensive hardware and open source software to encourage adoption and develop the world’s largest citizen scientist and professional operated fireball camera network
