Tonight's Sky

Those wishing to stargaze in Morehead can use this chart to determine the best times to do so. The chart illustrates cloud cover, light pollution and other factors that effect the visibility of stars.

How do I read the sky chart?

Read the image from left to right. Each column represents a different hour. The colors of the blocks are based on forecast maps for that hour. The two numbers at the top of a column are the time. A digit 1 on top of a 3 means 13:00 or 1pm. It's local time, in 24-hour format. Blue blocks represent times when conditions will be optimal for stargazing.
