Clear Sky Clock Widget is a simple and easy to use dashboard widget for evaluating sky conditions suitable for astronomical viewing. Simply install the widget, flip it over, and choose the location of interest. The data is dynamically retrieved from Atilla Danko's Clear Sky Chart Web pages. Instructions on how to interpret the clock are located there (although a legend is now built-in to the widget).

What's New

Version 1.5:
  • Added support for site names with accented characters. Fixed a problem that prevented sites with non-ASCII characters, such as those accented characters in French and Spanish site names, from showing up. The name may not look correct in the pull down menu (with a diamond where the accented character should be), but the site will work.

Requirements

Mac OS X 10.4 or later

It seems like a really nice idea for astronomers, but unfortunately, I don't have the screen real estate for it. If a resizable or mini version is made, I'll check it out again.

A key would be useful: what does blue mean?

And any chance of making it a bit smaller? More... widget sized :-) Oh I see, it's just a downloaded picture. So ‘Click for Help' isn't going to work, is it?

See, this thing is so -H-U-G-E- it needs to be closed, and opened when I decide to use it. Kinda defeats the object of widgetry.

Hm. Useful info, and a tidy chooser, but you're limited by the data you're requesting, I guess.

I agree, the widget takes up entirely too much space. I'm going to be adding a small setting which will probably only show a day's worth of data and scale the image down. I'll also add a key to the back.
Thanks for the input!

Glad to be of service... I just wish I'd commented when I was less tired. Sorry to sound snappy.

Can you put a credit to the guys who prepare the data in there, too? I think they'd appreciate it. They're doing it for free, but asking for donations, and have to justify their work on it to The Boss :-)

I do have the copyright information on the back of the widget, but you're probably right, it does need to be more prominent.

Thanks again!
