CAMS Meteor Shower Look-up Table - Version 2018-1 ========================================== IAU shower number assignments of video-detected meteors (+5 to -5 magnitude) in meteoroid orbit data from: [1] 2010-2016 Cameras for Allsky Meteor Surveillance (CAMS) - this study; [2] 2007-2016 SonotaCo Network Simultaneously Observed Meteor Data Sets (; [3] 2001-2015 European Video Meteor Observation Network (EDMOND) (; [4] 2007-2013 Croatian Meteor Network ( The list is limited to meteors assigned to showers only, and is used in the near real-time visualization of new CAMS data at: If database is used, please reference: P.

Columns: lo = Solar Longitude, ranging from 0 to 360 (degrees, Eq. J2000); l = Sun-centered ecliptic longitude (degrees, J2000), which is ecliptic longitude of the geocentric radiant minus solar longitude; b = Ecliptic latitude of the geocentric radiant (degrees, J2000); Vg = Geocentric velocity at begin of meteor (km/s); IAU = IAU shower number.
