Our mission is active—the NASA IMPACTS Daily Science Plan indicates that a flight is planned for 23 January with take-off currently scheduled for 6:00 a.m. ET. You can monitor the flight in real-time or see the completed flight path afterward.
Put your snowboard out now, with data collection occurring Monday (23 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:
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 email@example.com.
