Cosmic-Watch Software Description
Cosmic-Watch is an AR planetarium app, which allows you to see everything in the sky at any time. Imagine being able to know the location, magnitude, and origin of a meteor shower as you watch it; Cosmic-Watch will tell you all about it when you point your phone in the direction of the shower. You can turn on a virtual telescope which will show images and video clips of the shower as seen through a telescope. The app also lets you know when the next shower is coming up. Cosmic-Watch even works during the day.
Point your phone in a direction to see what constellations are in that direction, what planets are visible, and if any satellites are passing overhead. You can even track the moon, which will show you where it is at any moment in time. Cosmic-Watch has three modes of operation. You don’t need to know where the planets and the stars are; just point your phone and instantly see what you would see if you had a telescope. All in all, Cosmic-Watch is a great tool that you can consider among its alternatives.
