Gurudev Observatory

All Sky Camera Network

The Klipsch School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at New Mexico State University is developing an all sky camera system intended to monitor, track, and analyze atmospheric meteor events to provide a database for assisting satellite operators in separating natural and man-made events and for instrument calibration tasks.


Sandia National Laboratories, Albuquerque, NM provided seed funding in 2008 to begin development of ground-based network cameras for observing meteor/fireball events NASA Marshall Space Flight Center Investigating All Sky and Guided Automatic Real-time Detection (ASGARD) calibration and processing code.

All these have been placed at 3 nodes of Gurudev Observatory - Vadodra, Shantikunj-Haridwar and Rajanandgaon, Chhatishgadh.


  • Meteor detection through frame imaging and video
  • To create interest in youth about meteor observtion in India
  • Collaborate within Indian network of gurudevobservatory and with rest of the world about meteor observation.
  • Research & education on meteor detaction, observation, recognition etc.
  • Observation of sattelites, UFO etc, which are passing over the sites.
