Meteor Detection Data Updated - 2015 Results

This year we managed to collate the results and publish the results on New Years Day, so Happy New Year, and clear skies to all the meteor detectors out there :)

2015 saw a slight increase over 2014 with a total of 522 detection's, but it did not break the 2013 record of 552 detection's.

No system failures were reported, which has been the case since for several years since the PC was upgraded. False positives peaked around January and December as usual due to electrical interference from the air conditioners.

As at the end of 2015, the system has captured 2,837 meteors in total. There were a few really nice fireballs which resulted in some nice bright flashes...I will post the clips some day :)
