An hourly weather module in the vain of my MMM-BMW-DS series
Sunrise and sunset time
Current conditions updated every 5 minutes
And the next 6 hours, updating every hour
Added a single, spectacular animation to MMM-EyeCandy defaults
I found this very interesting.
“You’ve never seen the moon like in this ‘all terminator’ image (and you never will).”
"Shadows creep down the banks of every crater on the near-side of the moon, highlighting the pockmarked face of Earth’s gravitationally-bound buddy with a clarity never before seen.
According to photographer Andrew McCarthy, who posted the stunning image to his Instagram in April, there’s a simple explanation for the unprecedented level of detail in his work — this lunar view is actually “impossible.”
“This moon might look a little funny to you, and that’s because it is an impossible scene,” McCarthy wrote on Instagram. “From two weeks of images of the waxing moon, I took the section of the picture that has the most contrast … aligned and blended them to show the rich texture across the entire surface.”
The high-contrast section of the moon that McCarthy referred to is called the “lunar terminator” — the long line in the sand (or regolith, if you prefer) that divides the moon’s Earth-facing side between darkness and light. This terminator line moves around constantly depending on the phase of the moon, revealing or concealing new sections of the lunar surface each day. Because the terminator line heightens the contrast between the light and dark sides of the moon’s face, shadows look elongated and intensified in craters closest to the terminator.
Hi Slamet PS and everyone,
I am new to this stuff. started playing with raspberry pi during these lockdown days. I recently used MMM-PrayerTime module for my mirror.
Currently i am showing prayer time and sunrise on my screen. i found 2 following issues.
adhan plays on time but stops at the very end of adhan. i mean it doesn’t play full adhan and misses about last approx 10 seconds of wma file. I googled and found out that the OXM player had that issue which should be solved after update. I tried to update and upgrade my PI but no luck.
Secondly it starts playing adhan at sunrie time. Whereas it shouldnt play adhan but may be some beeps sound or something for sunrise.
Any help would be highly appreciated.
Excellent work, sir. As usual. Well thought out and executed. I’ll report that it runs beautifully on a Pi4. Video quality surprised me. Soon I’ll be baking cakes in front of my mirror, watching the video instructions!

Please try, Osterhofen or Deggendorf as your city, whichever is closer. Pöcking and Pocking are not acceptable by the module. Keep in mind, the ISS is not visible everywhere.
You can go to https://spotthestation.nasa.gov/ and find a better location, if there is one.
It will work if you can “click” it. Some people use Bluetooth keyboards. In any event, it would only be necessary when you were actually looking for your iPhone. I’m thinking about trying to implement a voice command to do the clicking. Thus, no need for touch or clicking.
If your friends were to give you their iCloud username and password you would only be able to find their phone and beep it, and only one, as the module stands.

I don’t know the reason the data is absent. It may be because of the government shutdown, it may not. Personally, I don’t think that is the case. I had to go back to September in the query of the API for daily images. That just won’t do. You can change the date in the query yourself (retaining format) and see for yourself. There are months of no data at all leading up to today
I now know the reason the data for Opportunity Rover suddenly stopped some months ago, as my self-quote states.
A sad day, but inspiring nonetheless.
