Weather Station
The LT Weather Station

It is important to keep an eye on the weather when observing, so the Liverpool Telescope has its own Weather Station. The station tells the robotic telescope when it is ok to observe, and when it should close to prevent damage to its electronic and optical systems.

All the data from the weather station is collected into an archive, and you can use the following options to search that archive:

Check the weather conditions at telescope Now.
Check the weather archive for the last 48 hours.
Check the weather archive for the last Month.
Check the weather archive for the last Year.
Check the Entire Archive.

It may take a minute to collect the data. Please be patient.


Please note that over the weekend of the 26-28th May 2017 we will be switching over to our brand new website - during this time there may be periods where the site is difficult to access, and users will be unable to request observations from the telescope. Please bear with us during this time. All should be back up and running by the 29th May 2017.
