Source of data

Observations were drawn from Christmas Island Aero {station 200790}.

The Christmas Island time zone is 7 hours ahead of UTC, i.e. 1 hour behind WST. So, for example, "9am" observations are those made at 0200UTC.Some cloud observations are from automated equipment; these are somewhat different to those made by a human observer and may not appear every day.

You should read the important information in these notes.
