Egg Moon Studio today is happy to announce that their first mobile app, Scope Nights, is now available exclusively for iPhone and iPod touch. Most weather apps don't focus on night time conditions, and so Scope Nights was developed to provide a quick & easy night time weather forecast for telescope and binocular owners. Accurate weather data is gathered direct from national weather sources and weather conditions essential to stargazing are analysed and rated to show which nights will have the best stargazing conditions.
"As an amateur astronomer myself I'm extremely pleased with this initial release of Scope Nights; I'm sure stargazers will find it an indispensable tool and a welcome relief from sieving through conventional weather apps for clear skies. It's designed to be quick and easy to use whether at home or at an observing site, and more features will be added in future updates, so it's going to get even better." said Martin Dodd, founder of Egg Moon Studios.
Scope Nights currently provides weather for the United States and the United Kingdom using public domain data services. United Kingdom data contains public sector information licensed under the Open Government License. Scope Nights currently provides stargazing weather forecasts, not astronomical seeing conditions caused by atmospheric turbulence or light pollution.
Scope Nights 1.0 is $1.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Weather category. Please visit Egg Moon Studio for more information, including a Press Pack, a list of features, screenshots and a trailer of the app in action.
