The purpose of this Rosemont Copper Mine sky brightness monitoring plan is to outline a selected approach to long term monitoring the sky brightness at telescopic sites at or near the summit of Mt. Hopkins. The plan outlines the monitoring that will take place on Mt. Hopkins to establish a baseline observatory sky brightness and how sky brightness changes over time as the result of the new Rosemont Mine site, and other related and unrelated activities. We will refer to this plan as the Rosemont Monitoring Plan (RMP).
