White Lake Weather Station Tour

March 13, 2020 @ 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM

Tour an active Weather Station!

The radar and weather balloon telemetry towers at White Lake Station.

Did you know there is a weather station in Oakland County?  The White Lake station is one of only 92 stations in North America, which launches two weather balloons daily.  As astronomers, we often reference weather data for planning purposes, but few of us may realize where the data comes from.  A big part of weather forecasting depends on accurate wind velocity and temperature measurements of all the layers of the atmosphere.  Club members are invited to join in an exclusive tour of the White Lake Weather Station and watch a real weather balloon launch!

Members Only Event

This event is for GMAC members only, but it’s never too late to purchase a membership!  Please visit our Membership Page for more information on benefits and pricing.  Don’t forget, as a member of GMAC, all individuals in your household can attend as well.

Important Information!

The U.S. Government operates the station and they require additional paperwork for non-U.S. citizens.  If you are not a U.S. citizen, please contact us at least three weeks before the event, to ensure your participation.  Also, the tour size for this event is limited, so please email Jim Goodall and reserve your spot!
