Astronomy Kit

Description

Astronomy Kit is an easy to use planetarium application very useful for amateur astronomers or simply for anyone who likes to learn about the night sky.

Quickly and easily locate the planets, learn at what time they rise and set, and decide the best moment to watch them. Select any date to plan ahead your observations. Use the geolocalization system on your smartphone to set your location so Astronomy Kit can accurately represent the sky.

The planetarium projects the positions of the stars, planets and objects in a flat map that is easy to read. Please, note that East and West are reversed because you will watch the sky map with the smartphone over your head to compare it with what you see on the sky, in this position if you are facing South, East will be at your left side.

If you find a bug or you have a suggestion, please instead of negatively rating it, send me an email to dev@sg5.org.
