The main operational goal of the project GLOBAL METEOR NETWORK it to establish a decentralized science-grade instrument which observes the night sky every night of the year from as many locations around the world as possible.

The science goals of the project are the following:

  • Providing the meteor community with near real-time awareness of near Earth meteoroid environment by publishing orbits of all observed meteors from all around the globe every morning.
  • Observing meteor showers, computing their flux, mass indices and orbits to constrain meteor shower prediction models.
  • Observing meteorite producing fireballs to increase the number of meteorites with know orbits (only ~35 at the end of 2018, more info: http://www.meteoriteorbits.info/) and help constrain meteorite source regions.
