Simulator of light scattering by planetary atmospheres
CalcMySky is a software package that simulates scattering of light by the atmosphere to render daytime and twilight skies (without stars). Its primary purpose is to enable realistic view of the sky in applications such as planetaria. Secondary objective is to make it possible to explore atmospheric effects such as glories, fogbows etc., as well as simulate unusual environments such as on Mars or an exoplanet orbiting a star with a non-solar spectrum of radiation.
This package consists of three parts:
calcmyskyutility that does the precomputation of the atmosphere model to enable rendering.
libShowMySkylibrary that lets the applications render the atmosphere model.
ShowMySkypreview GUI that makes it possible to preview the rendering of the atmosphere model and examine its properties.
