All Sky Fireball Network

Every night, a network
all-sky cameras
scans the skies above the United
States for meteoritic fireballs. Automated software
maintained by NASA's Meteoroid Environment Office
calculates their orbits, velocity, penetration depth
in Earth's atmosphere and many other characteristics.
Daily results are presented here on Spaceweather.com.

On Nov. 10, 2015, the network reported 71 fireballs.

(38 sporadics, 31 Northern Taurids, 1 omicron Eridanid, 1 chi Taurid)


In this diagram of the inner solar system, all of the fireball orbits intersect at a single point--Earth. The orbits are color-coded by velocity, from slow (red) to fast (blue). [Larger image] [movies]
