New Cyanometer
2009

A cyanometer (gr., cf. cyan) is an instrument for measuring the blueness,
specifically the color intensity of blue sky.

It is attributed to Horace-Bénédict de Saussure and Alexander von Humboldt.
The blueness of the atmosphere indicates transparency and the amount of water vapour.

The New Cyanometer developed by the Institute of General Theory is based on the CMYK color scale and was improved to a resolution of 64k.

A. Hold the Cyanometer against the sky looking North.
