This is the home of the internet-accessible robotic solar telescope, built by Tri-Valley Stargazers member Mike Rushford. Yes you can control your H-alpha filtered view of the sun by controlling this telescope from your web browser on sunny days in Livermore California, USA. Clear Sky Clock for Del Valle At other times there are other things to do too! Read about the latest solar physics findings a the Stanford Solar Center study Sunspots and the Solar Cycle prediction.
First check the local San Francisco Bay weather forecast or this Livermore weather forecast.
Check this visible light satalite view for clouds over Livermore California.
And check the local LLNL 48 Hour Weather Plots
This solar observatory is open only if its sunny here in Livermore California, USA.
