A Definate For Us Weather Geeks,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: AcuRite 00795A2 Galileo Thermometer with Glass Globe Barometer (Kitchen)
Very cool to have on your desk! I would of given it extra stars, but setting up the barometer can be tricky if you do not follow the directions exactly, and you do NEED to have sterile/distilled water along with food coloring (any color but I like blue as shown).
Also, if you put too much water or not enough water into the barometer, you have to use the syringe and little hose to take the water out. HOLD onto the syringe and hose, DO NOT throw away as you never know when it'll come into handy again.
As for the Galilio thermometer, that's pretty accurate and cool!
For those real weather geeks out there I say to get the biggest Galilio Thermometer (it's TWO FEET TALL) and can be purchased through Amazon 3rd party sellers. That one gives you 2 deg temps and is a nice thing to have in an office or desk.
