Sensor tests – update

12 06 2011

As Emily has commented, tests have been running throughout the day. The morning started bright with blue skies and some thin cirrus cloud, but as the morning progressed a weather front moved in from the south bringing in rain and total cloud cover.

04:08UTC – the front clearly visible just south of home










06:2UTC – Thick cloud now fully obscuring the sky










16:15UTC – The cloud cover now thinner but still 8/8ths coverage here.










The results so far have however been useful. We have a good range of data from the sensor tests under overcast conditions. (results will follow). The forecast for tomorrow is brighter, so I hope to run a few additional tests under clear sky conditions at 12:00UTC to get a maximum brightness reading, and if conditions permit Emily will take some further clear sky sunset and dusk readings to add to the data.
