Welcome to Miraculon! Moving soon Northward to Rogers City Michigan.

Miraculon Weather will be relocating soon. All uploads from the Livonia, MI location will stop by March 31st. I hope to have the station reinstalled in Rogers City by late April.

Davis Vantage Pro2

On 27 January 2012, a Davis Vantage Pro2 (VP2) Weather Station was installed. This station consists of the ISS with Standard Radiation shield and anemometer/vane instruments. The ISS is mounted on the north side of the house where the Davis Rain Collector II was previously located. This is shaded location. The Anemometer and Wind Vane are located on the tripod mast in place of the old AAG unit. There is a wireless Anemometer Transmitter that sends the wind data to the console. A WeatherlinkIP logger uploads data to Weather Underground and CWOP. The WU callsign is still KMILIVON2 and the CWOP callsign is still CW4114.

Solar Sensor OFFLINE

A Davis Solar Sensor (6450) was added to the station at the end of March 2012. This sensor is mounted on the mast directly above the tripod area. When the sun is north of East in the morning, or north of West afternoon, the sensor is blocked by the house. In addition there are trees, especially towards the SouthEast which affect the solar sensor in mid-morning. From just before noon to late afternoon, the sun is unobstructed. The solar sensor output can be viewed on Wunderground (KMILIVON2) or the Weatherbridge link above.

Remaining One-Wire Devices OFFLINE

The following hardware will continue to provide limited data such as lightning:

The One Wire Devices are running on SuSE Linux under OWW

The Lightning Detector and Deck Temperature reported on this site continue to run under OWW. The AAG Temperature/Humidity, AAG Barometer are still running and will be reported on Met Office WOW in the UK. Wind Speed is from the Inspeed Anemometer on Met Office WOW. No rain gage or Wind Vane data are uploaded due to a device failure in the old One-Wire Wind sensors. (specifically the Vane ADC)

Miraculon Weather is now part of the Blitzortung.org Lightning Detection network.

System RED station is number 706 BACK ONLINE!, 6.8 USB station is number 668

Hobby Board Lightning Detector OFFLINE

Hobby Boards Detector including Delta Count plot and NOAA Lightning Forecast

These lightning detectors are hobbyist grade and are not intended for safety or legal purposes. The Blitzortung network localization is to within a few kilometers. Some strikes may not be detected due to the very few US stations in the network.


Webcam is operational as of 18 Feb 2011. The camera direction is approximately SSW and is aimed to minimize the potential for sun damage. It is a 640x480 image, so it is not "high definition" by any means. You can see cloud cover pretty well. Weather Underground will pull in this image rather than a direct upload. This image will update every 5 minutes.

Look for CW4114 on the NOAA MADIS page by zooming in on the Detroit, Michigan Area. Wait for the data to load. It is helpful to add the OVERLAYS for Highways and Counties to get your bearings.
