Perseids and the Weather
One of the biggest factors when observing meteor showers or not in some cases, is the weather.
Meteor showers are usually best seen a few days before and right up until their peak, so being able to plan your observing around the weather is essential.
Luckily the Met Office have developed a new interactive website: WOW Weather Observations Website, where users of the site can enter their own observations and the results will be shown on a map. Very similar to the meteorwatch meteor map.
This new tool, will be excellent for planning your meteorwatch, Astronomy, or any other weather dependent activity.
Register and start enjoying WOW.
