Hello! to our 15,000 new Skyclock friends! You are from everywhere in the world and we're glad to have you join the gang interested in situation awareness and planning your day, night and twilight!
Our Holiday Sale was a huge success. We've got some aggregator apps and websites we'd like to thank, but we'll get to that later. Most important right now is our users, "new" and "already". Great to meet you and thank you for the referrals.
Our new Android sales were from almost a completely different Territory list than the iPhone sales. The Android list for the last few weeks from our Google P...
Happy Equinox! Today the Northern and Southern hemispheres are lit equally by the sun. So day and night, everywhere, are equally divided.
What differs today is the amount of light after sunset - the twilight period. Near the equator, you'll see shorter twilight periods. And the farther away from the equator you go, the more extended the twilight periods become.
Skyclock shows you the amount of daylight after sunset for your exact location. Check us out in the App Store and Google Play.
Good Autumn! and Good Spring to our friends in the Southern Hemisphere.
We've updated Skyclock for iOS 11, thanks to continued work on the project by our great team. Seeing your app come up as Ready for Sale in the App Store is a great feeling.
And thank you Skyclock users!
This version eliminates the in-app upgrade. Now, when you download Skyclock you'll get the full capabilities of the app without paying extra: Sun Zenith Time, and Sunrise, Sunset, Civil Twilight text messages at the top of the screen.
If you haven't yet, check us out on the App Store and Google Play. Skyclock is the definitive Sun and Twilight Calculator.
Big thanks to the Ohio History Connection in Columbus, Ohio for the members watch party! Sure It was partly cloudy during maximum occlusion, but without those glasses, we wouldn't have seen anything at all.
Hey Sun! Skyclock and all of our wonderful users will still love you tomorrow, starting at 6:51 AM.
It's eclipse day! The forecast for Columbus, Ohio (where we will experience 86% occlusion) is mixed. We might see it, might not. The main eclipse event (here) will be from about 1-4, with the main eclipse event at about 2:30.
The Skyclock app shows us that the Sun will be highest in the sky today at 1:35 at 62 degrees of elevation.
NASA has a great website for everything eclipse related, and an ongoing webcast, and observations from the International Space Station. Check it out!
10 years ago, several Skyclock team members were fortunate to holiday for 2 weeks in England and Scotland. We spent an entire day in Greenwich. It was the highlight of the trip. A perfect day.
There is too much to write about in one post. The park, the boot sale, the pub, The Royal Observatory, the museum (and the actor), and oh, the clocks. Greenwich and the Royal Observatory were a nexus for the scientific pathway of discovery that has led to so many things we take for granted today - global navigation notably among them.
