Beginner here. So i have not seen a single star in the sky for 2 weeks in northern Europe at about 59th parallel North. I havent even been able to try out my new old telescope properly since i bought it, very annoying.
What weather factors makes stargazing impossible or hard, more than cloudiness? Does fog make a big impact? There is no snow at all and it doesnt seem so cloudy, at least in the daytime?
There is medium light pollution, but i have also driven to a relatively dark site but there i could not see a single star either.
Not even the moon have been the slightest visible, not at all.
So what are the different weather conditions that can hinder stargazing, and isnt the winter generally the best time for stargazing?
Also is some places on earth more suitable for stargazing in regards to the latitude etc.?
