Observatory Statistics

There is a new Observatory Statistics page that highlights some interesting statistics on the Meteor Hunter observatory. For instance, the probability of the system detecting at least 1 meteor on a given night is only 46.30% (due mainly to cloudy Melbourne skies). However, once there are clear skies, the average meteors detected per night is 2.4. There are more statistics on the page itself.

Happy Meteor Hunting!
