About The Eye On The Sky Meteorologists Mark Breen and Steve Maleski became familiar voices in December 1981 with the debut of Eye on the Sky weather forecasts, which launched the partnership between the Fairbanks Museum & Planetarium and Vermont Public Radio. Lawrence Hayes joined the Eye on the Sky team in 2012.

The meteorologists gather information from various online sources and from a network of dedicated weather observers to produce accurate, local weather forecasts covering the tri-state region of Vermont, New Hampshire, and northern New York, as well as parts of southern Québec,and northern Massachusetts.

Eye on the Sky is produced daily at the Museum and broadcast by VPR, where it is heard by more than 200,000 listeners throughout Vermont and the surrounding region.
