Real Time UV level Readings
It is the sun’s ultraviolet rays that damage the skin and cause sunburn. Unlike infrared rays, this cannot be felt, it does not have to be a hot day for you to get sunburnt. A UV monitor located on the rooftop of the Mater Calvary Hospital in Newcastle provides accurate UV radiation level readings monitored by the Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency. For realtime UV readings go to link below. Readings are updated every minute between 6am and 8pm..http://www.arpansa.gov.au/uvindex/realtime/new_rt.htm
