The analysis of meteor trails using a publicly accessible array of two panoramic all-sky CCD cameras is presented. Located at Mauna Kea and Haleakala, Hawaii, the array captures meteor showers as well as sporadic meteors, and provides information regarding meteor atmospheric trajectories and light curves. The system also allows light curve analysis using the FITS data and the absolute distances between specific points of interest in the trail. Data collected by the system are available to the public in real-time, and can be accessed using a simple internet browser.
