Search by Sky Conditions Instead of Location Name

  • Hello! Searching for all locations that meet certain parameters (temperature, cloud cover, etc.) would be very helpful.

  • It would also be nice to add the Bortle value to the user-defined search filters, for example, to search for all locations with a Bortle score of less than 1.4. I was surprised to find a location with a darker sky than Big Bend National Park; Blitzen Crossing Campground in Oregon is a 1.2 on the Bortle scale according to your data, and Big Bend is 1.3. I would love to be able to run searches using that darkness parameter.

  • Also, how about boiling the whole page of data down to one score for an even quicker reference? If the results page for a particular location shows conditions over a 14-hour period, and the "Good to Stargaze?" column for that period shows 10 "No" and 4 "Yes," then the score for that location is 29 (14 hours divided by 4 Yes hours = 29%). Taking it a step further, searching for locations using their overall score would be a great tool! For example, show me all locations in the U.S. with an overall score of 50 or better using a specific set of user-defined parameters.
