Fourth station of SVMN is online

Since October 15, 2013, the fourth station of the Slovak Video Meteor Network - the automated video camera AMOS - is fully operational. Together, with stations at AGO Modra, Arboretum Mlyňany and Observatory in Kysucké Nové Mesto, large fraction of Slovakia will be covered and multi-station meteors will be detected. The system was installed at the private property of Marek Buček, who kindly provided logistical and technical support in the village of Važec.
