Cloud Free Night

Cloud Free Night is a non-profit online weather forecast information service, for the benefit of the Australian and New Zealand astronomy community. It is unique in offering a comparison of the widely available forecasts from the United States GFS global model with higher resolution forecasts from the Australian Bureau of Meteorology ACCESS model.

Testimonial

"... your site is my favourite cloud forecast site, not because I'm into astronomy, but because I'm a landscape photographer and I like cloud in my skies at sunrise and sunset. Keep up the great work, it's fantastic to have such a comprehensive and accurate resource like yours available to use."
