Welcome to the web pages of the Croatian Meteor Network (CMN). The network was put into opperation in the first half of 2007. At the moment, it consists of 30 surveilance cameras each having a field of view of 64x48 deg. The cameras monitor most of the night sky over Croatia. Cameras are paired, allowing for triangulation of recorderd meteors and ther orbit determination. The network is coordinated by a small scientific team: Damir Šegon, Korado Korlević and Željko Andreić.
