Weather

Weather conditions are very important for astronomy, well... for lots of things really.  Too many clouds interfere with visual observing.  Too much wind interferes with astrophotography.  Too cold makes everything miserable.  A too bright Moon hides almost everything else.  So it really helps to know what's going on with the weather.

On a typical night around 1500 sky photos are taken by the Oculus Allsky camera. Those images are then combined into this video so cloud motion can be observed. Watching the Milky Way pass overhead is pretty cool too!

Unlike sunrise, moonrise may not be the first Moon event of the day.
