Abstract

In meteor photography the velocity of meteors is generally obtained from a chopper which blocks periodically the incident light beam in front of the camera lens. In this paper I examine modulation of the meteor trail instead with a sinodial function and use frequency analysis to compute accurately the mean atmospheric velocity.
