calcmysky 0.3.1

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:

  • calcmysky utility that does the precomputation of the atmosphere model to enable rendering.

  • libShowMySky library that lets the applications render the atmosphere model.

  • ShowMySky preview GUI that makes it possible to preview the rendering of the atmosphere model and examine its properties.


Install calcmysky 0.3.1 as follows:

guix install calcmysky@0.3.1

You can also install packages in augmented, pure or containerized environments for development or simply to try them out without polluting your user profile. See the guix shell documentation for more information.
