You wait for years then several come along…

Caught another two sodium free meteors last night (early this morning)!

The first was the better, in fact a two for one! Got two meteors in the one frame with Taurus providing a nice background.

The sodium line should have just peeked into the frame on the far left. Being a touch brighter this spectrum has identifiable Fe lines.The others probably do to but they are just too faint come up in the spectrum. Again the spectrum is dominated by magnesium and calcium.

The gents of NEMETODE have a few captures of this one so I’m hoping they can get an orbit!

The other was at 040946 but was faint. Will need a little more work…

The zoo continues to grow!
