A guide to view the meteors.
With this weather, moon, and the city lights, the best we can expect to see is a rain shower
Cloudy in Vellore here as well. Hopefully I’ll be able to able to catch a sight if it doesn’t rain.
Here too, good rain and cloudy, we can expect same for tomorrow as well, so show is ruled out.
Looking at this satellite map, I think everything is ruled out for at least another week.
Has anyone had experience with building your own telescope?
Hi @Venu, I see there’s a separate topic about this so I will respond there.
The title is a clickbait but the science is very interesting.
