    Sponsors are remarkably wise and kind people who have contributed money to help defray the costs of generating clear sky charts from CMC data. They have my deepest thanks:

    Why be a sponsor?

    Sponsors are the reason why I can continue to maintain the clear sky charts. I try to thank sponsors by giving sponsored charts more updates, more forecasts, better reliability and more features. I also recognize sponsors on these pages. The complete details of what I do for sponsorship is long, but it is here. One person sponsoring a chart makes those benefits visible to everone.

    What does sponsorship pay for?

    More importantly, sponsorship does not pay for the basic data from which I generate the charts. That data is offered to everyone for free by the Canadian Meteorological Centre though their public web page.

    Sponsorship does reduce some of the costs of preparing and maintaining thousands of charts, internet access, web hosting, computers, software development, bookkeeping fees, caffeine and ibuprofen.

    How to be a sponsor.

    No amount is too small. For each us$5.00 (about cad$7.00) I will list your name, for one month, on the clear sky chart of your choice. Sponsorship lasts longer for a larger donation. I also do extra things for sponsored charts including updating them earlier with more data. (I ask more from commercial sponsors and do more for commercial sponsors. Email me for details.)

    There are two ways to sponsor:

    The paypal forms are too simple to know which clear sky charts you use. So also email me with:
    1. what name you'd like credited on this page. I can also link your web page, if you like.
    2. The names of any clear sky chart pages you'd like your sponsorship to be acknowledged on.
    I always acknowledge receipt with an email.

    How much does it cost?

    There is no minimum sponsorship amount. I am grateful for any support. Also, I do not repeatedly dun past sponsors for more money. I may email a sponsor once at the end of their sponsorship.

    But to be fair to all sponsors, I acknowledge sponsors on this page, and on chart pages they've chosen to support, for a time proportional to their sponsorship.
