Welcome to EAARO!
Event: The Leonids - 16th-17th Nov 2020
Known for its occasional spectacular storms of up to 1000 visible meteors per minute, the Leonids are one to watch (and detect in the radio frequency range!). This stream is associated with the debris trail of Comet Tempel-Tuttle, which takes around 33 years to orbit the Sun.
Event: Geminid meteor shower - 13-14th Dec
LIVESTREAM from 10pm
The Geminids are strong meteor shower caused by the object 3200 Phaethon, which is thought to be a Palladian asteroid with a "rock comet" orbit. This would make the Geminids, together with the Quadrantids, the only major meteor showers not originating from a comet.
We will be using antennae and digital receivers to capture radio waves reflecting off the ionised trails of meteors as the enter the atmosphere over southern Europe.

Data center update
After several months focused on establishing other operations, development of EAARO's data centre is underway once more. Preparation and cabling of the server room are nearly complete, and volunteer Rob has begun examining and formatting the servers donated to EAARO by GE last year. We're looking forward to some super computing!

Cambridge neutrino observatory
EAARO has plans to build a compact neutrino observatory in the east of england. Using bespoke cherenkov detectors, the team will search for weakly interacting neutrinos along with other cosmic particles generated by high energy astronomical events.
An educational charity to encourage and inspire people to pursue STEM subjects, while undertaking meaningful space research projects.
