LADEE: Observation Campaign
The LADEE Observation Campaign encourages citizen science and participatory exploration involvement in LADEE mission science. Participants make and record telescopic observations of meteoroid impacts on the lunar surface, or visual/video counts of terrestrial meteors to provide data that can be correlated with LADEE science instrument observations. The cache and publicity of a NASA lunar mission is used to increase public awareness of and interest in existing observation programs run by the NASA Meteoroid Environment Office, the Association of Lunar and Planetary Observers, the American Meteor Society, and the International Meteor Organization, resulting in increased participation in these programs and providing potentially valuable sources of data for the mission.
