What's up @ Blue Springs Scout Reserve - Sky Forecast

Stumble Upon Toolbar
Bookmark this article if you're planning a trip to the Blue Springs Scout Reserve!

Check out the following:

  • Clear Sky Chart for your astronomy and observing weather forecast and a link to the Camp website - for more see Weather forecasts for Stargazers
  • Heavens Above for observing forecasts and charts covering the International Space Station, Satellites, Planets, Comets, and Iridium flares as seen from the site
  • Google Maps for a look at the camp. The pin in the map is near the "Station House" and the clearing is tight. Better clearings are available on the entry road to station and the very large fields south and west across the 6th line about 1/2km away.
I'll add other camps and locations in the near future.

I'd have to agree, the Clear Sky Chart is one of the most useful things for an astronomer! Most weather places can tell you if it will rain or not, but they can't tell you how the seeing or transparency will be, now can they!
