Solar System objects rise/transit/set times from the ACA Observatory on the date of this event...

New feature: The "T" on each object's line in the chart above indicates the time of transit in addition to the rise and set times for the object.

 
Jet Stream (updates automatically to latest available image)
    The Jet Stream affects astronomical "seeing" (steadiness of the air)
    If we're in a gray area, seeing will not be as good as in a white area.
    If we're in a white area, the shorter the arrows, the better.
