2nd UAE Meteor Monitoring Network Tower is Up and Running

A team from SCASS (Ilias Fernini, Issam Abu-Jami, Ridwan Fernini, and Mohamed Talafha) spent a week (Jan. 12-16) in Yahar North (Al-Ain, UAE) to build the second UAE Meteor Monitoring Network tower as part of the UAEMMN project sponsored by the UAE Space Agency. The first and third tower have been built in Sharjah and Liwa, respectively. With the second tower operating, the system of three towers is ready to catch any space debris whether natural such as meteors, or man-made such as falling space satellites. The SCASS team was also joined by Anas Adwan, Shahab Mohammad Zarafshan, and Sahith Reddy Madara to help in building the Yahar tower.
