Global Storm Tracking - Status Update

To all:
I'm going to remove the Global Tracking site ( from public access. It will be redirected to my core site:

A few days into the hurricane season, Unisys, my data feed, changed how data was accessed from their page. This is forcing a re-write of the data mining portion of my system. This is a critical portion of the system as it grants me the ability to track global storms easily.

I have identified new data feeds. Unfortunately, my neurological issues are hitting me really hard as of late and I possess neither the physical or mental ability to move forward with the reconstruction of the website.

I do plan on re-releasing the site in the future. However, for now, I must take it slow.

I will continue to manually track and blog on the storms in the GOM and Atlantic regions. But, for now the automatic tracking is off.

My sincere apologies,
Jay C. "Jazzy_J" Theriot

July 23, 2018 at 8:30 pm - Moon and Jupiter - Together


Planet Jupiter and his moons - July 23, 2018 at 8:30 pm
Just taking a glance at my astronomy program, XEphem shows that tonight Jupiter and the Moon should be close together and high in the sky at about 8:30 pm.

The weather should be clear.

All this tells me that tonight should be a great time to put your phone down, go out side, see the Moon, and the bright star next to it. Only, that bright star will not be a star, it will be the planet Jupiter, in all his glory.

The Moon, 8:30 pm, July 23, 2018, will be close to the planet Jupiter.
