Further Analysis of Meteors

Tuesday 17th October, saw Helena Bates from the Natural History Museum come to William Perkin and carry out further analysis on meteor pictures with the Elite Scientists 2.0 group.

They used UFO analysis software to track the trajectory and speed of the meteors. It is important to have the constellation with meteor, so that it is easily locatable.


The software overlays the theoretical position with the actual position and superimposes the two images, so that trajectory and speed can be worked out.

Thank you to Helena Bates for a sparkling analysis session!
