Abstract : ► We adopt a new technique to interpret brightness of a meteor. ► Both changes in meteoroid mass and velocity are considered. ► Meteor luminosity is expressed analytically as a function of its velocity. ► We test methodology on 3 MORP fireballs.

Keywords : Meteoroid Atmospheric entry Fireball radiation Luminous efficiency
