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 ...
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 ...
Ir reflectante spectra of Antartic carbonaceous chondrites to better characterize the surfaces of asteroids targetted by sample return missions
Undifferentiated carbonaceous asteroids have experienced complex collisional histories, and a significant number are fragments of larger bodies. Meteorites arrived from these asteroids exhibit an amazing reflectance ...
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 ...
