Where is Stellafane on this map? Springfield is in the
southeast corner of Windsor County. From the southeast
corner of Vermont, we are one county north (the light gray
lines on the map are county boundaries).
If it's light out, take a look at several Stellafane locations using the Stellafane Webcams.

MODIS (Aqua) provides data on Aerosol Optical Depth. We learned about this at the 2014 convention, when although the regular weather forecast was for 'clear', aerosols from western forest fires blew over Stellafane, and produced hazy observing conditions. Below are instructions to get the current daily MODIS (Aqua) data - this is not a 'consumer' web site, but one for researchers, so there is no 1-click link we can give you to get the current data - you have to navigate to it.
