The Telescope Array (TA) is the world-largest cosmic ray detectors in the northern hemisphere, with fluorescence detectors (FDs) and a surface detector (SD) array. We have developed a cloud monitoring system for the TA sky to monitor weather condition during FD observation periods. We use a CCD camera with a fisheye lens to evaluate cloud coverages by identifying stars in the TA sky and comparing with a star catalogue. We will report the hardware of the monitoring system and details of the data analysis.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
