Geminids 2012 – Dual-station meteor videography

A network of low-light video cameras in Cheshire and West Yorkshire monitors the activity of meteor showers, enabling precision measurement of radiant positions and, from the best quality data, the altitudes and geocentric velocities of meteors and their solar system orbits. The results from dual-station observations of the 2012 Geminid meteor shower are presented and discussed.
