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
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!
Exactly what I was looking for
This app is perfect. Takes into account so many variables and shows you in a very user friendly way how the conditions will be on the best nights.
I would give it a 5 star if updated to support the iPhone 11 screen. Took a while to figure out how to use it. Could use better instructions. But I really love the way it has the graph of when you can see them.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
