Roberto Gorelli points our attention at a recently published meteor related paper:

The Quadrantids and December alpha Draconids 2012-2019 – Multi-year Meteor Videography

This paper has been accepted for publication in the Journal of the British Astronomical Association by Alex Pratt.

Abstract: NEMETODE, a network of low-light video cameras in and around the British Isles, operated in conjunction with the BAA Meteor Section and other groups, monitors the activity of meteors, enabling the precision measurement of radiant positions and the altitudes and geocentric velocities of meteoroids and their solar system orbits. The results from observations of the Quadrantid and December alpha Draconid meteor showers during 2012-2019 are presented and discussed.
