Tang Lung Elementary Allsky Captures First Meteor 24DEC2016

Tang Lung Elementary School Allsky, PingTung, Captures First Meteor 24DEC2016

  TAIMON's first Sandia Sentinel Allsky Camera System at Tang Lung Elementary School Allsky, PingTung (Node 41), Taiwan has captured its first meteor 24DEC2016.  Although a very minor meteor event, this marks the beginning of success for the new system installed at the school.

 Tang Lung Elementary School is Taiwan's FIRST school to launch a meteor allsky camera system program that will eventually involve students grades 3-6 in maintaining the camera and computer, and processing data.

  Principal Shi Shi has one of Taiwan's finest astronomy programs, taught at Tang Lung Elementary School, PingTung, Taiwan.  My thanks to Principal Shi, Richard Spaulding formerly of Sandia Natl. Labs who made possible the allsky camera on loan, and Dwayne Free of GoSky Sentinel, USA, for maintaining the computer nodes and worldwide meteor capture data.
 
  I had the pleasure of presenting this allsky camera equipment to the Tang Lung Elementary School as a gifted prototype for Taiwan schools. -Dirk Ross, Tokyo

Other Schools interested in purchasing allsky cameras please contact me by email at- Dirk Ross-
drtanuki@gmail.com  Thank you.

Please report your meteor sightings to this website for posting- Remember IF you are looking for a report and no one reports then everyone lacks information; thank you.
http://lunarmeteoritehunters.blogspot.jp/2000/11/meteor-fireball-report-form.html

There are currently 1 known NEO Asteroids discovered that will pass within approximately 10LD or less (LD stands for "Lunar Distance"), in the month of January 2017. I expect that 10 NEOs or more, 10LD  or less, will be discovered before month end. Expect some spectacular bolides, fireballs, and meteors this month and especially large ones 3-5 days before and following the passing of  the less than 10LD NEOs and 13 small mountain-sized NEO asteroids, diameters ranging from 400m-3.8km, that will safely pass this month.

Be ready for some bolide, fireball, and meteor activity!
Cameras Ready!
