Stellar Calibration

Trajectory data can be extracted from stars visible in a video or long exposure photograph of a meteor event. If stars in the video can be identified, then a very precise plane of travel can be determined. If stellar calibration is obtained from two videos with sufficient geographic separation, a very precise meteor trajectory may be calculated.
