Comet Watcher: How To Record Sound, Lux with Time and Date

How can you output the data to record data with time and date, Lux intensity of the night sky while measuring Ddb (decibels) per milliseconds? Example: Meteor and comets entering the atmosphere.

Broadly speaking, you'd use a sensor for each of the properties you want to measure, format the data in code, and write it all to an SD card or something.

For time and date you could use a real-time clock or a GPS module. For light levels, we have a range of sensors over in the shop:

For audio you'd need a microphone and preamp, but the kind depends on the range of sound levels you want to measure.
