#Meteorwatch in the news

The Discovery Channel’s web site has put up two interviews with members of Newbury Astronomy Society, relating to the recent twitter meteorwatch.

Newbury, tweeting under this account, organised and led the tweets on the night. But the efforts were mostly down to a few people. In this article, Discovery interviews Richard Fleet, Chairman of the society who tweets under this account.

But the main man behind the event was Adrian West, who tweets here, and he got a chance to write an article later on with Twitter: An Extreme Observatory.

The next #meteorwatch will be the Geminids in Mid-December, expected to be more spectacular than the Perseids this year. Between now and then, there will be a second #moonwatch in mid October, to coincide with the International Year of Astronomy, 2009 Autumn Moonwatch.
