Stardust is a privately founded and operated small astronomical observatory located in Brasov , a city placed in the middle of Romania.

Stardust is not a classical astronomical observatory as you might expect ( a special building with a great dome housing some huge telescopes ) but is a bunch of astronomical equipment permanently placed in a light polluted area in a medium city at my home. Still the important thing is that this equipment is capable to produce high precision astrometric measurements and also other interesting and also scientific useful data.

Stardust Observatory is enrolled at MPC with the code L13 from January 2016. Also the meteor station is enrolled in a meteor monitoring network project called ROVIMEN since 2015.

“The atoms of our bodies are traceable to stars that manufactured them in their cores and exploded these enriched ingredients across our galaxy, billions of years ago. For this reason, we are biologically connected to every other living thing in the world. We are chemically connected to all molecules on Earth. And we are atomically connected to all atoms in the universe. We are not figuratively, but literally stardust.” ― Neil deGrasse Tyson
