Meteor Section Overview

John Mason
John Mason

Collection of visual, telescopic, photographic, video and radio observations of meteor activity on a routine basis, at all times of the year and not only when major shower activity is expected. The data add to a long-term archive of information covering activity, allowing long-term trends to be studied. Photographic and video observations yield valuable positional and orbital data. The Section also collects fireball reports for the British Fireball Survey (originally a joint exercise with the now defunct Artificial Satellite Section).
