Busy Times

2014-06-13 07:35:56.000 – Cyrena Briede,  Director of Summit Operations


To say things are busy right now at the Observatory is an understatement! We just completed installing a complete solar array on the roof of the Weather Discovery Center, the new Extreme Mount Washington Museum has reached the day of it’s grand opening, and we will be premiering a brand new website this summer. But that’s not all!

We are so fortunate to have many media requests from Quebec to Boston that want to come to the summit and tell their viewers about Extreme Mount Washington. I spent all day Monday with Nick Borelli from WCAX who will air a few stories about the Observatory next week. On Tuesday, we had the longest running research project to happen on the summit return! From 1955 through 2006, UNH measured cosmic ray flux on the summit with the Observatory. With the help of Berlin High School, they brought their new instrument enclosure to the summit so their research can return once again this summer.

Speaking of this summer, have you signed up to participate in our biggest fundraiser yet? Seek the Peak, the Mount Washington Observatory’s annual fundraiser, is coming up on July 18th-19th, so head over to the website and register now to help in funding our cause! We truly appreciate your fundraising efforts and support!
