FRIPON (Fireball Recovery Interplanetary Observation Network) is a network of hundreds of cameras spread over 22 regions of France. This technical device allows the meteorite flight path and their falling point on the ground to be estimated. Scientists also wanted to create a community including general public in order to save time gathering meteorites after their fall. Volunteers are trained during the astronomy festival of Fleurance (France) ; this exercise will help scientists to focus on improving their logistic and human needs.
