Lunar Imapct Flashes
« on: 16:35:45, 31 May, 2014 »
Hey there fellow amateur astronomers,

I'm currently doing a project on lunar impact flashes and will be taking observations with two remotely controlled telescope across the next year, when the weather is permitting and the Earthshine is optimal (having a good amount of shadow of the moon to allow the meteor impacts to show up). My main telescope is a 10" Meade telescope. I am using the data from videos captured by the telescopes to produce a light curve of the impact flashes, with the main question being "how does atmospheric distortion and other factors effect the image of the impact flash?" To find this out I need have as many independent sources of the same impact as possible, from various part of the UK and Ireland. So my question is, does anyone here take videos or images of lunar impact flashes or are planning to in the near future?

Thank you for reading,

Rachael, K.
