The interactive Twitter Meteor Map is Here.
Now you will be able to tweet if you have seen a meteor straight from twitter, On your computer or from your phone, just like you would for any normal tweet and see your observations appear on the “Meteor Map” in real-time.
The meteor map couldn’t be simpler to use: Just send a normal tweet with a little bit of information (More instructions at the bottom of the map page) and your results will appear on the map.
As well as looking up, enjoying the night sky with us and seeing meteors, maybe for the first time? We encourage everyone to send tweets telling us when they see meteors (shooting stars) and contribute to science and have some fun at the same time.
The results of the meteor map will be shared with organisations such as the British Astronomical Association and your results will contribute to serious science, so we can learn more about our solar system.
