    Mobile App for Astronomical positions of Stars and Planets


    Do you have a keen interest to know about the latest astronomical events? Check out with our technical experts if there is any relevant Mobile App to know the Astronomical positions of Stars and Planets.

    Nowadays there are many mobile apps for addressing various tasks and issues.

    I want to know if there is any good mobile app which can help in knowing the position of planets and main stars in the sky at a given time.

    Generally planets will appear to be moving on the background of sun signs and major stars. Though there will a repeat of sky pattern after an year but the planet position will be changing from one sun sign to other. Scientifically speaking it is a complex calculation. So whether someone is able to devise some software resulting in an app for it?

    Good question and creative thought as well.

    No is the answer for it right now. Who knows it may be created anytime in the current future and whatever has already created may not be the correct one but just to get the traffic for their app.

    One can suggest this one to either Google Maps or NASA etc.

    As far as I know, there is one App 'Cosmic Watch' named which gives a location of stars in the nighttime with the exact time. You can even view the selected stars and related objects with ON and OFF grid in the app. This app is a paid app and cost around 5 USD.
