Planetary and Space Science, October 15, 2020, Volume 191, Article 105036.


Al Akhawayn University is a member of the Global Fireball Observatory (GFO) which is an international collaboration established in 2017. The goal of GFO is to deploy fireball observatories all around the world to maximize fireball observation area and therefore meteorite recoveries, using common hardware and data reduction, and facilitate collaboration amongst a range of planetary science partner institutions. The project brings together over 19 institutions within Australia, USA, Canada, Morocco, Saudi Arabia, UK, and Argentina. The AUI fireball observatory is installed on the roof of the Conference Center in the Annexe.
