The "Mobile Observation of Meteor" (MoMET) device


Meteor shower outbursts happen every year, but cannot be observed by a single meteor camera network. In addition, bad weather might prevent the recording of such event. In order to enable the observation of meteor shower outburst, we developed a "Mobile Observation of METeor" device. It involves two suitcases for meteor double station observations. Each case includes a total of 5 cameras to maximise the scientific output. Each camera is controlled by a mini-PC (RaspBerry pi or Odroid) and runs the "RMS" software (Vida et al. 2021, MNRAS, 506, 4, 5046). The MoMET devices were successfully used to record the 2021 Arids meteor shower from Chile.
