An Alternative to the Clear Sky Chart


Recently, Andrew Cool, from South Australia wrote to me with a suggestion to check out SkippySky, an Australian alternative to the Clear Sky Chart. So you might think, what would an Australian website know about my weather? Quite a bit, actually. SkippySky uses global model data to provide an international astronomy forecast (so it's not limited to North America). The nice thing about SkippySky is that it shows not only what the astronomy conditions will be like at your specific latitude and longitude, but what the surrounding conditions will be like as well. It kind of reminds me of the radar displays one might find at a local weather website. This can be useful when determining whether to set up the scope or not. The features of SkippySky allow you to view total cloud cover, low- medium- and high-cloud cover, transparency, dew risk, seeing, and several other parameters. So give SkippySky a try next time you go observing. I know I will be trying it out!

Clear skies!

Sean, they're called Clear Sky Charts now. See http://cleardarksky.com/csk/faq/0.html

Ah, I was previously unaware of this change. Thanks for letting me know. Name has been changed.

Clear skies,
