Attention GLOBE Students, Educators and Partners!  

Our mission is active—the NASA IMPACTS Daily Science Plan ( indicates that a flight is planned for 15 January at 8:00am ET. You can monitor the flight in real-time or see the completed flight path afterward at 

Put your snowboard out on Saturday, with data collection occurring Sunday (15 Jan) and continuing throughout the storm and 24 hours afterward if possible, or as soon as you can (e.g., if you are taking measurements at a school).  

Measurements requested include: 

  • New snow depth 
  • Snowpack depth 
  • Snow water equivalent 
  • Clouds (optional) 
  • Photos of snowflakes (optional) 

Even if you don’t get precipitation in your area, recording and submitting zero precipitation is helpful for the mission. If you don’t get snow, measure the rainfall if possible.  

If the flight status changes, we will let you know as soon as possible. If you have any questions, please see the Mission SnowGLOBE homepage or reach out to us at  

Happy measuring!
