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.

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.

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! --josh

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! --josh
