I also thought it would be cool to share some space-gazing apps I really enjoy, so go enter and then come back.
Sky Guide star gaze constellation finder Good with or without the spacey mood music. A few modes, including a night vision mode which is an obvious addition, but still nicely executed. Learn about the mythology of constellation, view constellation lines and view satellites.
ISS Spotter hands down my favorite feature of this app is the notifications. It delights me to get the ding and think for a moment about what’s going on up there and how the planet might look to this international team of astronauts.
3.Co-Star Personalized Astrology. Hey, it can’t be all real science all the time. If Mercury is in retrograde, I need to prepare! The key with this app though is its use of actual NASA data, so it’s not completely junk science.
- The Dark Sky Calendar is a great tool, too. I like knowing what the moon is up to (lol). Their page “When to Go Stargazing” is a masterpiece if looking up is something you’re into.
Are you a space fan? Do you have some favorite apps you can share? Winter skies are coming!
