Perth Observatory is a member of the Global Meteor Network, and we have seven cameras recording the night sky. These state-of-the-art cameras capture meteors, satellite passes, and other celestial events, providing us with a unique view of the Solar System’s formation and evolution.
The footage captured by these cameras is not only valuable for scientific research but also for public viewing. You can now watch live images from the cameras, which update every three minutes during the night. Additionally, we’ve made available condensed footage from the previous night, highlighting every meteor detection. Be warned, it’s hard not to get hooked on watching these videos – they’re strangely soothing, and you may find yourself visiting this page every morning.
We are committed to expanding our camera network, and as more cameras are installed, we will add their feeds to this page. Stay tuned for updates, and thank you for your interest in Perth Observatory’s exciting astronomical endeavours.Refresh Images
