Poggio Lecceta

Radar ENAV, Valle Benedetta, Livorno
At 462 meters above sea level, Poggio Lecceta is the highest of the Colline Livornesi (Livornese Hills) and this oversized golf ball on its top is the radar of a weather station.

Imagine if a giant came along, carrying a huge golf club.

Who knows? Given how globally interconnected we are, maybe date collected from this station helped with our local forecasts recently.
