The following video shows all fireballs recorded by the United Kingdom Meteor Observation Network (UKMON) in 2015.

UKMON was set up in early 2012 with the aim of it becoming the first UK-wide network using CCTV cameras to capture meteor trails across the night sky.

Their objectives are to:

  • Establish a network of relatively cheap CCTV cameras to monitor continuously meteor activity over the UK;
  • Assist members with analysis of meteor data and publishing papers;
  • Enable members contribute to, and collaborate with, other networks across Europe using video data acquisition technology;
  • Bring together individuals who are already working independently;
  • Encourage involvement by individuals and organizations (including astronomy societies, schools and colleges);
  • Provide a platform for sharing knowledge and experience.
