CAMS is an automated video surveillance of the night sky to validate the IAU Working List of Meteor Showers.

We joined in right from the start of the CAMS camera network in this part of Europe in 2011.

8 cameras are operational from our location covering almost the entire night sky.


In 2017 the Astronomy Project Oostkapelle joined the ESA-ESTEC sponsored FRIPON-NL network:

Detlef Koschny en Adrea Toni ( ESA-ESTEC ) installed the instrument next to the Cyclops Observatory.
This camera is sponsored by the ESA Meteor Research Group.


The goal of this project it to establish decentralized science-grade instruments which observes the night sky every night of the year from as many locations around the world as possible.

The Astronomy Project Oostkapelle participates in this project with 4 cameras
