    SMAS is now a Weather Ready Nation (WRN) Ambassador through the National Oceanic and Atmosphere Administration (NOAA).

    As amateur astronomers, we are constantly looking at the weather in hopes of going out to observe objects in the sky.  Summer means vacation, outdoor activities, and fun in the sun! It’s a time when families hit the road to visit national parks or distant relatives. The warm months and long days mean that there is plenty of time for baseball games and barbecues. The sultry temperatures practically invite you to take a dip in the pool or lake.

    But don’t let the sunny days and warm nights fool you. Summer also holds significant weather and water hazards. Heat waves can be lengthy and deadly. Lightning deaths are at their peak during the summer.

    We’d like to remind you to be safe out there this summer, and contact us if you need more information.
