WARD BEECHER PLANETARIUM
at Youngstown State University
OVER 50 YEARS OF SERVICE
The Ward Beecher Planetarium, located on the Youngstown State University campus, serves as an astronomy and science education resource center for the Mahoning Valley and surrounding communities. A facility in the Department of Physics, Astronomy, Geology, and Environmental Sciences (PAGES), we support astronomy teaching on campus as well as offer a variety of planetarium shows to the public--preschool through senior citizens.
We are continuing our mission to deliver quality astronomy and science programming to our community from home. Virtual Field Trip options along with a robust catalog of online resources are available on our website HERE. We will update this page regularly.
SKIES OVER YOUNGSTOWN
Summary: In the rows labeled "sky conditions", find a column of blue blocks. You can probably observe then.
Details: Read the image from left to right. Each column represents a different hour. The colors of the blocks are the colors from CMC's forecast maps for that hour. The two numbers at the top of a column is the time. A digit 1 on top of a 3 means 13:00 or 1pm. It's local time, in 24hr format. (Local time for Youngstown is -4.0 hours from GMT.)
