Back to the Summit!

As you may know, one of the goals of the nonprofit Mount Washington Observatory is to take hourly weather observations, then submitting them to the National Weather Service to help them improve forecast models. As a working weather station, we must take observations 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Although I normally work the day shift (roughly 5 AM-5 PM EST), I have the privilege of working Wednesday night this week, transferring back to the day shift by Friday. I have worked nights a handful of times in the past and really do enjoy the peacefulness the summit of Mount Washington has to offer at night. I’m enjoying it while it lasts!

Observer FootnoteThe Mount Washington Observatory will be hosting the sixth annual Science in the Mountains lecture series this summer! This free, informative lecture series is open to the public. The first presentation will be July 16th! We hope to see you there!
