First, what is METEOR in the European satellite program?

Second, MeteoSats are geostationary - they don't "pass" over the UK.

Third, MetOp-A is the new polar orbiting European satellite. Might want to check its overpass times with Fred on this board.

Hello m3eay

There are no Meteors at the moment, only NOAA's. The easiest way to follow them is downloading a tracking program, e.g. WXTrack of David Taylor. See http://www.satsignal.net/

I don't know if this supplements what Fred (thanks Fred!) already posted or not. It probably doesn't - satellite tracking isn't my thing though... might want to take a look and decide for yourself:

LIST SERVERS
WX SAT (all polar orbiting and geostationary meteorological satellites): Timely E-Mail of information (TBUS, TLEs), questions, and discussions. Send E-Mail to "wxsat-request@met.fsu.edu" with blank subject line and "subscribe your name" as the message (where "your name" is your actual name). This site does not distribute imagery. Not affiliated with NOAA. Administrator: Florida State University Meteorology Department.

http://noaasis.noaa.gov/NOAASIS/ml/links.html

Another link, this one from Scotland (I think I got it form Taylor's site), that has great satellite imagery:

http://www.sat.dundee.ac.uk/

You have to do a free registration to get the imagery.
