The most accurate meteor activity forecast
• Major events calendar
• Upcoming nights predictions
• Hour-by-hour estimates
• Meteor showers reference
Meteor activity varies greatly from one night to another. Most of the time you can expect to see 3-15 meteors per hour, but several times per year this number could rise to 90, or even more! The MeteorActive app uses the latest scientific findings and cutting edge technology to calculate how many meteors you can see at given time. It takes into account your geographical location, meteoroid stream orbits, moon interference and light pollution to find the most spectacular events for you. Clear skies!

Ratings and Reviews
Really love this app, not sure why it’s not used by skywatchers a bit more... especially meteor junkies like myself. I love having instant access to all major shower forecasts, as well as some numbers and info on the Apex/Antihelion sources as well. The only upgrade it could maybe use is, giving the coordinates of the radiant for each major shower at a specific time... I have no problem looking up where it’s at and then finding it with other apps such as SkyView or StarWalk... but it would certainly bring this apps status from great, to perfect if it could show you where to look (it may already, I might just be missing this quirk, if anyone knows anything about this let me know please). Nonetheless, great stuff Meteor Active! I really enjoy this little app... keep it up.
I absolutely love this app, it’s simple and easy to use and understand, it has more advanced features as well that can be fun to mess with as well.
My sole complaint is that there isn’t a notification the day before the peak of the larger showers to remind you, but that’s easy enough to add to my calendar or whatever.
I’ll reiterate again just how simple and straightforward it is to navigate the app.
I found this app to work very well to identify when a shower is above my horizon And which ones are active. The only downside is that it cuts off at sunrise. Ham radio meteor users can still use meteors during day light hours as long as the shower is above the horizon. It is possible to make some day estimate based on the night curve but it would be a better app if it covered day light as well.
Developer Response ,
Hey hungry travler, thank you for your kind words! You can go to the Settings -> Geek Stuff and disable sunlight, moonlight, light pollution, and sky glow. This effectively gives you a forecast for radio. Keep in mind those settings doesn't persist between app runs. Clear skies!
