A typical day for Professor David
||It is early in the morning at the Royal Observatory in
already the scientists are at work and the dome is open.
The sky is clear and the nice weather will allow them to observe all
favourite subject: the Sun.
Observations are always of better quality in the morning or at true
noon when the Sun is
at the culmination point in the sky.
Indeed, in the morning, the pollution does not yet contaminate the
atmosphere above Brussels and the culmination point is the point where
the solar rays cross
our atmosphere the most directly. This allows then the astronomers to
avoid a major
part of the interferences due to different atmospheric layers that
terrestrial globe. The dome is rotary, giving thus the possibility to
in all directions and at any time of the day.
