Mission statement – CAMS is an automated video surveillance of the night sky to validate the IAU Working List of Meteor Showers.

Global Meteor Shower Activity

Results obtained by the different CAMS networks can be consulted immediately when the data is reported by the network coordinator: http://cams.seti.org/FDL/

Site useage: Requires HTML5 compatable browser. Place cursor in “Pick a date” window. From pop-up calendar, select a past date for which data are available from one of the CAMS meteor shower video surveillance networks.

Detailed orbit data remains under embargo until appropriate validation and research has been completed. Once the data has been examined and analyzed, CAMS orbits are made public and can be used by researchers. If you use CAMS data please, mention the following reference in your publication: P. Jenniskens, Q. Nénon, J. Albers, P. S. Gural, B. Haberman, D. Holman, R. Morales, B. J. Grigsby, D. Samuels, C.

Currently the CAMS orbit data covering the period October 2010 until March 2013, about 111000 orbits have been made public. This includes mainly orbits by CAMS in California (~110000 orbits) and the orbits from the first year of the CAMS BeNeLux network (~1000 orbits). These orbits can be downloaded as an Excel spreadsheet:

This data represents less than 20% of the collected orbit data by CAMS. More orbit data will be released for public use soon.
