I'm not so sure about this.  Walter Baade discovered the 
relationship of Population I and II stars from Mt. Wilson because
of the blackouts, which were on for long periods of time.  Baade
was a German citizen, and couldn't do war work as most other
astronomers.  What about civilian meteor observers?  Were
there any in Europe?  I wonder.
