SkyLine – the Multi-Purpose Meteor Observation Project
K. I. Ivanov, E. S. Komarova
Against the relevance of meteoric astronomy which increased in recent years there was a need of carrying out the high-quality supervision capable to give the maximum quantity of information both on separate meteoric particles, and about streams which they enter. This situation is caused by potential possibility of received results use for research of the Earth's top atmosphere, and also clearing a number of questions concerning formation and evolution of the planet.
Among of meteors research methods the special place is taken by video surveillances as the most informative and rather simple in realization. In 2014 efforts of authors developed and successfully tested the hardware-software complex allowing a message continuous video surveillances and to receive exhaustive data on behavior of meteoric particles in the atmosphere and space. At this work the main data on the technical device, a program component, and also the principles of receiving and information processing are submitted.
With the project were carried out observations of the Perseids meteor shower. Both the camera at a distance of 155 km to work every night from 5 to 15 August 2014. 886 result meteor registrations were received, of which 150 – basis. The analysis revealed six major meteor stream, but as the observations were carried out during the Perseids, then 80 % of the meteors belong precisely to this thread. According to the results of basic observations were calculated radiant, speed, altitude sunbathing meteor particles orbital parameters, and others. In total, the program provides information on 80 parameters, astrometry and photometry of error is 10 % on average.
