Air Quality for NearSys Station, 5 - 12 July 2019

We had a spike of poor quality air on the morning of the 12th. Otherwise, it looked good for the entire week.






24-Hour Temperature and Relative Humidity for NearSys Station, 12 July 2019

It's easy to see in the data that it started raining around 8:00 PM.


24-Hour Photometer for NearSys Station, 12 July 2019

Odd spike 8:00 PM in the ultraviolet. We were experiencing a thunderstorm at the time and I don't know if the flashes were bright in UV or it was the rain on the sensor.

24-Hour Temperature and Relative Humidity for NearSys Station, 7 July 2019

Strange spikes in the relative humidity were measured on Sunday morning, before sunrise. NearSys Station is far enough away from the yard that I don't think the sprinklers were responsible for this. Otherwise, after sunrise the temperature and relative humidity behaved as expected.

From the looks of the data, NearSys Station experienced consistently hazy skies on the 7th. However, there were no unusual spikes in the intensity of any of the colors measured.

Air Quality for NearSys Station, 28 June - 5 July 2019

There was odd spike late on the 5th when the concentration of particulate matter increased ten times. The event lasted approximately 12 hours. It can also be seen that NearSys Station was offline during the 29th.

Visibility for NearSys Station, 7 July 2019

It's a hazy day. Even last night it was too hazy to justify taking the telescope outside. With that in mind, the visibility at NearSys Station is just barely 50 miles. That's because the Boise Mountains can barely be seen from the air.

All-Sky Photometer for NearSys Station, 28 June 2019

Odd drop in light intensity. I wonder if a cloud passed over. I can't imagine someone stood in front of the photometer for 20 minutes while it was recording.

Trying to catch up with my old data. While I was gone, the WIFI shut itself off for two and a half days.

I placed the incorrect sensor outside this weekend (they look alike). Therefore, I only recorded the temperature over a 24 hour period.
