Weather Alerts help you get the most out of Astrospheric by putting its powerful servers to work for you.
When weather meeting your requirements is detected at your favorite locations,
Astrospheric will send you an alert. This way you’ll never miss a night of observing or photography.
Note: An Astrospheric Subscription is required to enable weather alerts.
A subscription allows weather alerts to be turned on
for 10 favorite locations.
Weather Alert Settings
Once you’ve enabled Weather Alerts for a favorite location, you’ll get notifications on any iOS or Android device that
you’re currently logged in to.
Use one of the 3 observing presets to quickly get up and running, then fine tune the weather parameters to your exact needs.
Here are the parameters you’ll be able to define per location. Each one of your favorite locations
can have different parameters set. When any setting is changed it is automatically saved.

Sun Altitude - What altitude of the sun relative to the horizon is acceptable
Moon illumination - What is the maximum percentage of moon illuminated acceptable

With the latest Kp Index update, you can also set a KP value and cloud cover value independant of your other settings.
