The earth is bombarded both day and night by meteoroids and meteorites. These wayward bodies - small fragments derived from ageing comets and the collisions between asteroids - are observed in the Earth's upper atmosphere as meteors [shooting stars] and brilliant fireballs. Written with the amateur astronomer in mind, the topics covered include: # Step-by-step guidance on visual observation and analysing data # Practical projects demonstrate how the observer can gather scientifically useful data # Instructions on how to photograph meteor trails and how to video meteoroid impact flashes upon the Moon # Fireball detection systems and designs for meteor detection systems using radio receivers # Advice on how to look for and identify meteorites # Step-by-step instructions on starting a micrometeorite collection
