When active, the images below will be updated at different rates at regular intervals, depending on observatory activities. For the moment, hourly updates of medium size images are provided from 6 am - 7 pm EDT (GMT - 4). Large size images are interleaved on the half hour. Manually update the images by refreshing this page in your browser. The same video sources are displayed on NTSC monitors at the COSETI Observatory. Check back from time to time to monitor the observatory. At other times a different line-up of video sources will be available, including NTSC versions of the monitor displays of the various computers employed at the observatory. There is a live image window further down the page. At certain times this window will replicate one of the Monitor displays at a refresh rate of between two to three frames per second, depending upon Internet access speed and latency.
