Astro Panel (Astronomy)

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***

Please note I am not affiliated with 7Timer in any way.

Please contact me with any bugs/feedback!

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.

Helpful It's now the first thing I check to decide if it's worth planning an observing session for the night. Only 4 stars because of the exit app message :)

Update to last 5star review The app stopped working. Now it says "Downloading and calculating" and then it says that the data could not be downloaded, and to make sure I'm connected to my network. Downloading via wifi btw. And I can't access any other part of the app or get past this process.

Doesn't work Well you've got to give them a try, but I have to say this is awful! The one time (out of five tries) that it did work, it looked nothing like the views shown above. Big thumbs down I'm afraid. 👎👎👎👎
