Above Brum

I loved the idea of Above London (twitter) and as I utterly failed to see any Perseid meteors this week, I thought I’d shamelessly steal the idea for my locality, so I can at least hopefully see something light up in the sky in the not-too-distant future. :)

The account will send a message c. 30 minutes before an Iridium flare or an ISS flyby, based on information from heavens-above. It always sends the message even if the weather is bad, but does include the latest weather report so you can decide for yourself whether it’s worth popping outside.
