■ What is the weather on October 21st?
From October 21st to the early morning of 22nd, western and eastern Japan will be covered with high pressure and sunny in various places, and it will be a perfect night sky for observation. Even in northern Japan, there is a chance to see it through the clouds, but it is recommended to observe it early in the evening of the 21st or early in the morning of the 22nd because the clouds tend to spread in the middle of the night.
In Okinawa, clouds are likely to spread due to the stagnant front over the southern seas of Japan and typhoon No. 24, and thick clouds will spread mainly in the Maejima Islands, and the weather will be difficult for observation.
The information released this time is based on the forecast as of October 20th. For the latest information, please check the company's PC site, smartphone site , and smartphone app "Weathernews Touch".
