Mark Breen

Join Mark Breen at Flood Brook School for a free, fascinating look at what shapes Vermont’s weather and a guide to the stars. The event is sponsored by the Londonderry Conservation Commission.

Mark is senior meteorologist and senior astronomer at the Fairbanks Museum, where Vermont Public Radio broadcasts his daily weather reports as well as his Eye on the Night Sky fun facts.

The first half of the program will explore local weather questions and trends, while the second half will focus on constellations and the upcoming Leonid meteor showers. If the weather cooperates, Breen will take visitors outside to view the night sky; otherwise, he will offer a tour using a special computer program that can project the night sky in real time on the screen.

After earning a degree in Meteorology from Lyndon State College, Breen joined the Fairbanks Museum, where he and Steve Maleski embarked on what would become an institution for weather fans.
