Gargunnock Meteor Detection Camera

This is the website for the Gargunnock meteor detection camera, part of the NEMETODE network for meteor triangulation and orbit determination. This is a project to use video footage of the same meteor taken from multiple sites to triangulate the meteor trajectory through the atmosphere, which allows the original Solar system orbit to be computed. The images below show the installed camera (left) and the projected field of view (right), with the camera pointing to the north east at an elevation of around 30 degrees. Meteors become visible at an altitude of around 100km (the ablation layer) when they are travelling at several tens of kilometres per second. Depicted in green is the intersection of the camera field of view and the ablation layer.

Recent video captures

The camera system uses software called UFOCapture to process the video feed in real time and automatically identify and record possible meteor events. The entire system runs autonomously and uploads new videos to this page the morning after they are captured. As well as meteors many other things can trigger a detection, including satellites, clouds, bats, owls and car headlights. Depending on the weather conditions and time of year, there can be many spurious detections of non-meteors.
