The Atlantic Canada All-Sky Camera Network

All-Sky cameras observe the night skies for meteors (shooting stars) and their larger cousins, fireballs. Fireballs are of specific interest because they sometimes Online trading south africa result in the fall of meteorites. By tracking these fireballs against the backdrop of stars captured by the cameras, we can accurately determine their trajectories in three dimensions, and thus where meteorites may have fallen.

The Atlantic Canada All-Sky Camera Network is a system of cameras in the Atlantic Provinces of Canada that integrates the cameras with schools/universities. The students monitor the cameras, and upload fireball and meteor data to the site, for viewing by other students and the public.
