The third grade class from Jasper-Troupsburg Elementary School is featured in this week’s Weather Wisdom. Liam Zver and Elaina Oles asked, “do meteorologists study the weather in space, too?”
When we think of the weather, we think temperatures, precipitation, or maybe wind. What we also want to know is cloud cover, especially for stargazers. Friday night, for example, little to no cloud cover will make for a great night of stargazing.
Weather in actual space is a little different, though. Space weather means conditions in space that change from time to time. Most of space weather starts with the sun and all the energy it gives off.
