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 ...
A bright bolide produced by a meteoroid follwing a Jupiter family comet orbit
One of the techniques employed by the SPanish Meteor Network (SPMN) to monitor the night sky is based on high-sensitivity CCD video de- vices. These have a limiting magnitude of +3/+4 with- out using any image intensifier. ...
Large meteoroids belonging to the α-Capricornid meteoroid stream
Several objects have been proposed as the parent body of the α-Capricornid meteoroidstream. Among them we can find the short period comets 141P/Machholz and 45P/Honda-Mrkos- Pajdusakova, but also asteroids such as ...
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), ...
Orbit and radiant of sporadic fireball imaged by the Spanish meteor network
The development of a network of meteor observing stations allows for a continuous monitoring of meteor phenomena. One of the main goals of the SPanish Meteor Network (SPMN) is the analysis of the physico-chemical ...
