Scientific Astronomer is a general astronomy system that produces charts, generates animations, and derives information about astronomical events. Scientific Astronomer covers four main areas of astronomy including star charting, planet plotting, eclipse predicting, and satellite tracking. More specifically, it can
Help you determine which objects and events are visible from your location and tells you exactly when and where to look for them
Determine the positions of all the planets, the Sun, the Moon, and other objects on any given date for thousands of years into the past or future
Produce radial, compass, zenith, and wide field star charts
Search information about the properties and movements of over 9000 stars
Display surface feature for the Moon, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn
Compute precise eclipse times
Calculate times and best viewpoints for lunar occultations of stars and planets
Plot satellite tracks (can be included in star charts)
Generate planisphere plates, planet wall charts, and solar system plots
Calculate precise times of sunrise, sunset, moonrise, moonset on any given date
Calculate times of new and full moons
Displays orbit of planets, comets, and asteroids
Scientific Astronomer also includes many notebooks with worked examples on topics such as annual meteor showers, eclipsing and pulsating variable stars, earth satellites, comets, asteroids, and eclipses.
