Introduction ...

Below is our collection of tidbits, odds 'n ends for Burmont Park.

This page contains seven sections:

Outdoor Activities ...

As we travel, we like to pursue some of our interests (such as astronomy and bird watching).

When in Burmont Park, we use the following websites to find information relevant to Burmont Park and the surrounding area.

Weather ...

Before heading outdoors, you should check the weather:

The National Weather Service forecast for Burmont Park and surrounding area.

Astronomy ...

Whether using binoculars, a small telescope or the naked-eye, the Heavens-Above website can help amateurs find their way around the night-time sky. In addition to detailed sky charts, their website lists the visible planets, asteriods, comets, satellites and their track across the sky.

To give accurate results, Heavens-Above requires the latitude and longitude of your location. As a starting point, when we link to Heavens-Above, we pass the location for Burmont Park. Once you're on the Heavens-Above website, you can improve accuracy by giving a more precise longitude and latitude for your actual position.

We enjoy finding new spots for bird watching and we use the eBird website to find local sighting reports and hotspots.

The eBird website is organized on a county-by-county basis. We have selected Weber County as the starting point when you click on the link below:

Since Burmont Park is near Davis County and also Morgan County, we have provided a link to their eBird sighting reports:

How Far From Burmont Park to ...

We spend a lot of time looking through Gazetteers that were published in the late 1800's and early 1900's. Many of the Gazetteers include the distance from a community such as Burmont Park to various places of note, such as the White House.

With a nod to our favorite Gazetteers, the straight-line distance<1> beginning in Burmont Park and extending to:

  • Ogden [Map], which is the Seat of Weber County, lies just to the Northeast.
  • Salt Lake City [Map], which is the State Capital of Utah, lies 28 miles [45.1 km] to the South Southeast (SSE). If you could walk a straight line from Burmont Park to Salt Lake City, with an average speed<2> of 2.2 miles [3.5 km] per hour, it would take just about two full days to make the trip. A horse and buggy averaging 3.2 miles [5.1 km] per hour would take just over a day.
  • The White House (Washington, DC [Map]) is 1,844 miles [2,967.6 km] to the East (E). Driving, with an average speed of 63 miles [101.4 km] per hour, would take most of three days, a buggy would take 72 days and walking would take 105 days.
  • The shortest distance<3> to Jerusalem (specifically the Temple Mount and the Dome of the Rock [Map]) is 6,978 miles [11,230 km] and it lies to the North Northeast (NNE).<4>

Footnotes ...

<1>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' (or point-to-point) distance. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Burmont Park) to Point B.

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Burmont Park. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 41.1597, Longitude: -112.0424     [Map].   In this case, the coordinates for Burmont Park have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).

<2>While we have tried to pick reasonable speeds, the rate of travel is very theoretical - obstacles like fences, hills, lakes, river crossings and rest stops have been ignored. When we say 'Days' of travel, we're assuming 8 hours of travel per day.

- Return to Citation

<3>The shortest line can be visualized by stretching a string on a Globe from Point A to Point B - this is known as a Great Circle Route. Where you might expect the shortest route from Burmont Park to the Middle East to be East and South, the Great Circle Route actually lies to the North and East.

<4>The calculated bearing (or angle) to Jerusalem is 332.081 degrees.

<6>The calculated bearing (or angle) to the Vatican is 321.826 degrees.
