About These Resources

These resources, as well as the others for web-based, software, and applications provide an introduction and suggestion for potential use for lab. 

Keep In Mind

Not all online, downloaded, or mobile applications can accommodate all needs.  It may be necessary to trial several in order to find resources for specific needs.  Some tools are better suited for quick views, others accommodate different locations and perspectives, and some tools are specific to a limited list of objects. 

Local Weather Predictors

After spending the time to travel to a dark site, setup equipment, get your eyes dark-adapted, a downturn in the weather can ruin a hopeful observation session.  Its often helpful to have an understanding of what will happen in the coming hours before observing.  There are numerous weather websites, apps, and tools at your disposal to best understand what the coming weather will bring.  Here are a few suggestions:
The Weather Channel
The Weather Channel was a staple of weather prediction provided on most cable television providers.  This website can provide an overview of the day’s weather, hourly predictions, and a radar map of weather movement.

Accuweather
Similar to The Weather Channel, Accuweather provides similar information in a more condensed format.  This website can provides current weather conditions, as well as hourly predictions, and a radar map of weather movement.

Weather Underground
Unlike the previous two (2) websites, Weather Underground uses data from non-NOAA sources, such as private weather station owners who publicly broadcast their real-time local weather.  For more accurate and current weather conditions, Weather Underground can be your best source for hyper-local weather conditions.
