On the chemical composition and orbit of a diurnal fireball
In general, meteor and fireball imaging systems operate during the night, as these mostly employ high-sensitivity recording devices that get fully saturated even under twilight conditions. Lowsensitivity video cameras ...
Analisys of large sporadic meteoroids in the framework on the Spanish meteor network
The monitoring of very bright fireball events is one of the aims of the SPanish Meteor Network (SPMN), as these allow us to collect very valuable information on the origin and properties of large meteoroids that can ...
A 13 kg meteoroid from comet 21P/Giacobini-Zinner recorded as a bolide during the 2011 draconid outburst
The parent body of the Draconid meteoroid stream is the short period comet 21P/Giacobini-Zinner. This cometary debris gives rise to an annual display of meteors from about October 6 to October 10, with a maximum activity ...
The 2011 Giacobinid outburst : meteoroid flux determination and orbital data by using video imagery from the Spanish fireball network
On October 8th, 2011 the Earth encountered the dust trails left by comet 21P/Giacobini- Zinner during its XIX and XX century perihelion approaches. The encounter was forecasted in great detail [1, 2, 3]. Geometic ...
Orbital elements and emission spectrum of a Comae Berenicids fireball
The Comae Berenicids (COM) is a minor meteor shower with an activity period that extends from Dec. 12 to January 23 and a maximum around the end of December. This shower was tentatively linked to comet 1913 I (Lowe), ...
Large meteoroids from the 2P/Encke complex : orbital data of 2010 taurids recorded in the framework of the Spanish fireball network
Cometary disruptions are though to be an important source of Near Earth Objects (heareafter NEOs). A continuous monitoring of meteor showers from multistation networks on the ground allows to get valuable orbital ...
