[2021-04-23]Fireball above Belgium last night
It was captured by the new AllSky7 camera that we have recently installed in Humain. See the HD video below (Credit: AllSky7)
It was also detected by the FRIPON network which provided the trajectory. The fireball passed nearly at the vertical of our transmitter in Dourbes. Below the image from our FRIPON camera located in Brussels and the visible trajectory as reconstructed from FRIPON data.
It was also detected by all BRAMS stations creating a very strong overdense meteor echo saturating several receiving stations. Below are examples of data recorded at Humain, Genk and our recent new station at Halle de Han in Tintigny.
[2021-04-22]Boxes sent to 3 test schools in the frame of MOMSTER
[2021-04-09]From STEM to STEAM : the place of art in sciences
The mission consists in creating an artwork and/or a sketch on the theme of meteors and/or the radio detection of meteors. The winning project will be used to decorate the MOMSTER boxes to transport the material to schools
Deadline of the contest: 2 May 2021.

[2021-04-09] New BRAMS station at the Planetarium in Brussels
Examples of spectrograms recorded in the first few hours are shown below:
In the future, plans are to show the data live to the public and provide some educational material about meteors, their radio detection and BRAMS.
Let’s start first with some excellent news: we are hiring a PhD student for 4 years to work on BRAMS data. The details of the application procedure can be found here.
