Paper Abstract

Starting March 2011 the “Pi of the Sky” project has two observatories in use: in northern Chile and in southern Spain. Since then we are able to observe a parallax of objects, which pass close to the Earth. Simultaneous observations from two sites are very important to us, because this allows us to reject false flash observations, due to cosmic radiation, meteors, planes, etc. In this paper we present theoretical limitations of our parallax observations. Moreover, first results are shown.
