Forecasts for stargazers

Dimitrios Kechagias

Designed for iPad

    • $0.99



Xasteria+ aims to give you quick access to all the weather forecasts & tools you might need in a single app - especially made for those with an interest in the night sky.

It adds the Apple Weather and MET Norway weather sources, and several extra tools and features to the free Xasteria app and was made primarily to fund the 7Timer weather forecast servers. Why not try the free version of Xasteria first - it is completely free with no ads - if you like it, you can support the service by getting Xasteria+ which comes with many extra features:

-Apple Weather configurable hourly/hyperlocal world forecast.
-MET Norway configurable hourly world forecast with cloud layer option.
-Night-vision mode (choice of red/green/blue) with dimmer.
-Lunar Calendar with Sun/Moon graphs and rise/set/twilight.
-Location Manager with choice of location sources (online search, offline database, maps) and access to GPS accuracy/elevation and barometer data (for iPhones/iPads with barometer sensor).
-Solar Eclipses: Find all future Solar Eclipses for any location and simulate them.
-Landscape display mode ability extends to iPhone/iPod.

As with the free version of Xasteria, you get a customizable world forecast from the ASTRO/7Timer service which provides:
-Cloud cover.
-Astronomical seeing.
-Atmospheric transparency.
-Temperature & Humidity.
-Atmospheric instability.
-Wind Speed & Direction.
Apple Weather and MET Norway forecasts add visibility, dew point and more.

Xasteria provides you with a choice of 3 visualization modes for the data: an icon/graphic display based on 7Timer's ASTRO, the color-stripe graphics similar to some other astro-forecast services and a raw text mode.

Additional features:
-Quick access to selected astro-weather web sources like Clear Outside, Meteoblue, Windy, Astrospheric, Sat24.com, the latest water vapor satellite images and animations, as well as the nearest Clear Sky Charts.
-Light pollution report/maps for your location.
-ISS and bright satellite passes for your location (data from heavens-above.com).

Xasteria is available in English, Greek, German and French. If you would like to translate it to your own language, please contact the author.

I would appreciate a quick review on the App Store if you are using the app (there will be no popup asking you in the app as I hate those). If you have a specific request/suggestion you can also try the official app page at http://astro.ecuadors.net

The best astronomy weather app

First I tried the Clear Outside app. Terrible UI and totally outdated format and crashed often. Next I tried Scope Nights. Definitely a step up, but then it started to have a pop up saying there was an error for every single one of my saved locations and they would appear every time a new page loaded. With a lot of saved locations it became really bothersome to clear so many pop up notifications whenever I was using the app. This app has none of those problems and a much better system for saving favorite locations. I don’t except I’ll need to keep hunting for the perfect astronomy weather app anymore.

Thank you!

While a beginner with the night sky, this app is so helpful, with all kinds of options and info about the various factors in the atmosphere. I recently stayed up a bit later (upon reading elsewhere of good viewing), and wondered just why all seemed somewhat hazy/ cloudy….or something. Remembering to check this app ended up telling me all I needed to know (and then some, what with the options!). It's now my go-to. It's also so good on the iPad.

Fantastic app!!

This was clearly made by someone who’s just trying to make an effective, easy-to-use app to fulfill a clear, well-defined function, and who knows what’s needed and what’s not. Thank you for an excellent app! I had NO qualms whatsoever about getting the Plus version. Thank you!
