AllSky Camera

Thanks to the generosity of UTC Aerospace, the McCarthy Observatory has acquired an SBIG AllSky-340 camera capable of imaging virtually the entire sky as seen from the roof of the observatory! This allows us to better track real-time weather conditions (in conjunction with our weather station), track satellites that pass overhead, and even watch for meteors or other space phenomenon! See below for the latest image, a link to a time lapse video of the last 60 minutes, and a few noteworthy images!
