About this app

[Back ONLINE!!]

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.

WHY CAN'T I TURN THE NOTIFICATIONS OFF? It's good information, but keeps sending annoying notifications all the time. Astronomy is just a hobby, not a full-time job for me, so I don't appreciate all the nagging about how I should be out there observing. I'm very tempted to uninstall it just to stop them, which would be a pity because the information is useful when I want it.

I like Astrospheric app better but I like the simplicity of this app & how you're able to see the extended forecast right away. Suggestion: Add a shortcut to calendar app so users have the ability to send themself notifications for upcoming "clear sky opportunities"

Cloud forecast predictions are inaccurate - I will never base my observing on this app again. I will stick to Google weather and the Norwegian weather app yr.no which is very good. It is, however, a nicely constructed app and has made me aware of different weather elements such as transparency which are relevant when observing the stars.
