Monsoon: traditionally defined as a seasonal reversing wind accompanied by corresponding changes in precipitation, but is now used to describe seasonal changes in atmospheric circulation and precipitation associated with the asymmetric heating of land and sea. (via Wikipedia)'
Monsoon season is upon us! And while we welcome the rain cooling us down here in Southern Arizona, we aren't able to run our SkyNights Programs at the SkyCenter. Our site and telescopes are in Monsoon Shutdown until August 31.
Plan ahead and make reservations in the fall!
In the meantime, check out these great tips from the Arizona Daily Star on what to look for during the monsoons.
