Reporting observations using Post codes and zip codes has been discontinued and no longer works.
Tweet your location, hashtag, number of meteors seen and anything else you would like to include in your tweet.
For your location start the tweet with Town, village or suburb folllowed by the country you are in. This will help the map position your observations more accurately.
Hashtags that will work with the map include: #meteorwatch, #perseids, #meteors and #meteorshower. Hashtags will be added or changed for different events.
Here are some examples of valid tweets:
Make sure you follow the above examples for composing tweets for the map. Remember to tweet your location, #meteorwatch, how many meteors seen and anything else you want to include in your tweet. If you do not compose your tweet in this way, it will not be picked up by the map.
For your own safety and security, please do not give your precise address or location. Your approximate location e.g. Town, village or suburb is accurate enough for the map.
The Meteor Map is a fun way of sharing your meteorwatch experiences and observations. No information is permanently stored by the map or meteorwatch.org as the map only reads information from twitter.
