Month: January 2018

2018 January 31st - Lunar Eclipse

As you can see, sunrise may interfere with totality, but you should be able to see much.

My calculations (using the program XEphem from the Clear Sky Institute) are as such:

Moon enters Earth's penumbral shadow: 4:52 am

Moon enters Earth's shadow: 5:49 am

Sunrise: 6:50

Moon reaches total coverage:  6:54 am (after the sunrise)

Happy viewing!

Current Weather Chart In Production

Code is simplified to require minimal input to add/remove a location.

Next step is to generate 24-hour, Week and Month graphs of the data and have them hot-link to the front page, all automatically.

This should not be a considerable task as I have the code from my previous graphs. I just have to modularize it. That is, I take the code block, break it into pieces. I then reconstitute the original code block programmatically substituting variables in every location that I can. This method allows me to develop a configuration file of sorts for each Theater and/or storm which will cause the website to morph itself to fit whatever global condition it may happen upon.

I can't see any reason why the site will no be in full production for the upcoming Atlantic and Pacific Hurricane seasons.

Thanks for reading,
