Sky Watchers are a type of Watchers that protect the Silent Realm. Unlike the Guardians, the Sky Watchers are not affected by the Sacred Tears. The Sky Watchers fly through the Silent Realm in a set path while shining a beam of light from the lanterns they carry. If Link touches this light, the Sky Watcher will emit a loud shriek that will awaken and alert the Guardians to Links' location, removing the effects of the Sacred Tears no matter how much time Link has remaining.
Sky Watchers are very similar to Earth Watchers, but unlike the Earth Watchers, Sky Watchers will not chase Link if he gets close to one. While Earth Watchers patrol the ground and float near it, Sky Watchers patrol the sky and fly higher up.
