Abstract

A network of meteor stations is being deployed in Morocco with the aim to determine meteor trajectories and their relationships with possible parent bodies. Several meteor showers may be related to known parent bodies, such as the the comet 109P/Swift-Tuttle, which is associated to Perseids. Two stations of meteor observations with Watec cameras were recently installed in Morocco as part of this network, one at the Oukaimeden Observatory and the other at Marrakech. This paper presents the implementation of a software to determine the orientation of the camera, and the preliminary results obtained with the two stations.
