Gyrocompass 3D Check out Gyrocompass 3D iTunes preview We are happy to announce a NEW app “Gyrocompass 3D”. Gyrocompass 3D is a software compass built on gyro, camera, and accurate celestial maps that works even on devices with no compass inside! The concept behind iPod touch augmented reality is very simple - when you know your location and have the gyro to detect movements, all you need to replace the compass is to tell your iPod where the Sun is. Simply point the built-in iPod camera towards any sky object, for instance the Sun (or the Moon) and swipe the app generated sky to match the real one, and voila… you have a fully functioning software compass which has even more precision than the one in an iPhone or iPad. How to use the GyroCompass 3D: 1) Make sure that you allow the app to use your current location. 2) Tilt your iPod towards the sky and match the appearing images with what you actually see above you in the sky. 3) Done! ATTENTION: This app requires iPhone 4 or 4th generation iPod Touch.

Welcome to “The Longest Day in my Life”, a blog about the experience of spending a full year at the South Pole hunting for neutrinos.

Neutrino the penguin and me at the Geographic South Pole Star Charting Apps for iPhone/iPod Touch Review by Dan Schroeder, Physics Department, Weber State University (Opinions expressed here are mine, not those of WSU.) Update badly needed! This review was last updated in early July 2009, but even then I didn't have time to bring it fully up to date. Planisphere is a great new app in the bargain price range: only $0.99. Owners of the Apple iPhone and iPod Touch are fortunate to have a great selection of low-cost astronomy applications, available from the iTunes Store. All of the seven serious star-charting apps have these basic features: In choosing one or more of these apps to purchase, you should ask yourself questions like these: How much astronomy do I already know, and how much do I want to learn? Visual Comparisons: Comparison Table Size is listed here to give some idea of how much information the app actually contains--with photographic images taking up the most space. Drag/Zoom Speed is my subjective impression of the app's graphics performance. Summary Please help!

Stellarium Pocket Universe 1.7 • Register Hardware iPhone App Review Pocket Universe is the creation of one John T. Kennedy who was inspired by lack of opportunities to view the night sky with any clarity or frequency in his native Dublin. The app is basically a star map, which takes advantage of the new iPhone 3GS compass to provide a Virtual Sky, which follows your movements, enabling you to identify any object in the firmament. The startup screen (left) is the portal to all other features The app needs to know the time and also requires that location services are active.

Book Binding & The Eden Workshops Official Source of Cassini images of Saturn, its rings & moons Captain's Log November 12, 2013 Four months ago, our cameras on Cassini were commanded to execute a routine imaging sequence during an event that was anything but routine. On July 19, an array of overlapping images framing Saturn, its entire ring system and a host of its moons was acquired while Cassini was deep in the shadow created by the planet's eclipse of the Sun. Images of this nature had been taken before. But from the very start, the plans for the July 19 mosaic included something very special: If all went well, the images would capture a glimpse of Earth alongside Saturn and its rings at the very moment that people all over the globe would be contemplating their connectedness to each other and to all life on Earth, appreciating the rarity of our planet within the solar system, marveling at their own existence, and rejoicing at the very thought of having their picture taken from across the solar system. And contemplate, appreciate, marvel and rejoice they did! After much work,
