Astro Panel (Astronomy)


Astronomy weather forecast. Forecast data is from 7Timer and includes:

- Cloud cover
- Seeing
- Transparency
- Humidity
- Wind
- Temperature
- Lunar Phase
- Lunar Altitude
- ISS Passes (automatically localised)
- Support for GPS-only devices
- Support for devices with no location services (manual long/lat entry)
- NEW overview graphic

Astro Panel is entirely free. If you would like to support me as a developer, please download my game, Finger Shepherd! (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=shibby.fingershepherd)

This lightweight astronomy app detects your location and uses it to instantly give you a forecast that is highly localized and works worldwide.

***Uses 7Timer's Astro Panel to achieve this (see http://7timer.y234.cn). The forecast grid and key are loaded directly from this website***

About 7Timer
------------
7Timer!, pronounced as "Tri-Timer", means "bell of clear sky" in Chinese. It is a series of meteorological forecast products. Most of the products base on a numeric weather model from NOAA/NCEP, called GFS, and aim on short-term (up to 16 days) weather forecast service for special purpose, for example, astronomical activities, or meteorological condition assessment. 7Timer! was first introduced in mid 2005 and has been revised for better fitting of public service operation in mid 2008. It's first designed as a weather forecast tool for astronomical purpose, as the author himself is a long-term astronomer and is always annoyed by fluky weather conditions.

Recent changes:
- (2.17) Quick fix to resolve some display issues
- App now falls back to IP address to circumvent DNS problems.
- Improved reliability of clear sky alerts.
- Removed some unused permissions.

I love this app! This app does a great job of giving you all pertinent information about observing the night sky! Moon phase and altitude, humidity, wind, cloud cover, etc. I find that it's way faster than before after the last update. I use it to plan my astrophotography sessions. Thanks for this great app.
