We attended the worldwide campaign of asteroid 3200 Phaethon which is the target of Japan’s space mission called DESTINY. One of the campaign’s propose is to realize the size distribution of the dust particle within the trail of 3200 Phaethon. Radar observation and meteor optical detector systems from ground-based can provide information about the size ranges in micro- and meter-meteorite but there is no clear size-strength correlation over the size range of centimeter to tens of meters. Fortunately, the issue can be solved and estimated directly from a study of Lunar impact flash. In the end of 2017, we started to monitor the lunar surface with small telescopes to detect light flashes resulting from the hypervelocity collisions of meteoroids. In this work, we report our primarily results from 1.5 hours of our Lulin lunar impact flashes monitoring system.
