As it says in the forum description:
General Observing: A forum for observing experiences involving satellites, meteor showers, aurora, atmospheric phenomena and other observations that do not neatly fit into existing observing fora. Also encouraged are: discussions of meteorology, home weather stations, and the effect of weather on amateur astronomy.
If you observe something that just doesn't fit elsewhere, or like observing things that aren't covered elsewhere (say, you're one of those people who just loves 'noctilucent clouds' this is the place.
I like to say this is the forum for things <300 miles above the surface that you can see with the UNAIDED EYE, no instruments, just the old MkI Eyeball.
If you post in this forum and the moderators think it fits better in one of the more specific forums, we'll relocate the post (and leave a pointer). Please don't be offended if we do this, it's our jobs.
So keep it fun, keep it nice, and post what you see (or don't see if it's more appropriate).
And once again, WELCOME!
