Radio Meteor Collaboration Database

Recommended Posts


In Jan 2017 a group of us who do Radio Meteor Detection in the UK started to collaborate and pool data, this now forms part of the Meteor Collaboration Database. Simplistically we take our monthly log files from Spectrum Lab and import them into a MySql Database. We currently have some 2,502,360 Unique Events recorded, from those we then have an area for all Events that are 5 Seconds or longer and finally produce a Coincidence Listing

The Coincidence Listing shows events that are 5 seconds or longer and are detected by 3 contributors or more and occurs + or - 5 seconds of each other

Its not an exact science but many of the listed coincides are clearly the same event

Ie: http://meteor.m81.co.uk/conview.php?id=1820

You will note that where possible we also include the screen captures and if there is an associated BOAM capture (http://boam.fr/) we link that to

So all data contributions are happily accepted as are suggested improvements to the website

Very interesting!

I had a quick look through some of the recent October long duration events logged in the database and have some detections at the same time.

I'm interested in submitting results from my setup. Are contributions automatically submitted, or sent by email? 

Given my more northern latitude compared to the other contributors it would be very interesting to compare, especially with a few major showers due over the next couple of months.

It would be great to get further contributors, once setup you can either email the monthly log files or upload them to an area on the site after which I load the data.


I will PM you my contact info
