meteor-showers

This project renders debris clouds in the solar system. When the Earth passes through a cloud, we experience a meteor shower!

About

The project is online at: https://www.meteorshowers.org/. It uses data from NASA CAMS, and was built with feedback from project leader Peter Jenniskens.

This is a modified version of Asterank's 3D code, which is another project of mine.

Installation & Usage

npm install or yarn install to install dependencies.

Run node showers.js to start the app on port 8988 (http://localhost:8988/)

A very rudimentary JS bundle is used to prepare the app for production. Running ./build.sh will generate a new bundle file. Add this file to git and update the bundle in index.html.
