Using data retrieved by the NASA Near Earth Object (NEO) program, Asteroids from Outer Space displays information on comets and asteroids that pass within Earth's neighborhood.
Weekly asteroids- The latest threats to mankind!
Asteroid information- Know your enemy! Details of the asteroids from NASA themselves.
Doomsday Clock- Countdown to the end of humanity! Find out which upcoming asteroid is the doomsday-iest??
Asteroid notifications- Reminder of your impending doom!
Widget- Dangerous asteroid of the week!
We are a small student group from Dublin, Ireland and would really appreciate any feedback!
*Please note that although the date is accurate, the specific time of asteroid close approach is an estimate, and does not reflect actual pass-by time.
The Orrery is a model of the solar system as view from celestial north, and orientated
such that solstices occur when the earth is due-north (top, winter solstice) or
south (bottom, summer solstice) and the equinoxes are east (right, autumnal equinox)
and west (left, vernal equinox). All orbits are assumed to be perfect circles.
The position of the Earth and Moon are fairly accurate, as are their orbits. The remaining planets positions are approximate, but close enough considering the size of the typical phone or tablet screen. The starting positions of the moons other than that of the Earth is not accurate. The orbital periods of all planets and moons is accurate relative to the other planets and moons.
This app should be considered simply something fun to look at, but not anything to be taken too seriously.
It is based on the database published by the Planetary Habitability Laboratory @ UPR Arecibo.
Planets for which sufficient data is not currently available (such as missing mass or semi-major axis) are filtered out, but may show up with future database updates. The database can be updated online.
One of the key features is the graphical representation of the habitable zone of a parent star. Exoplanet Guide comes with a fully featured star chart plotting stars down to magnitude 6.4 plus all Messier objects!
Export all exoplanets with illustrations to KMZ format for use with Google Sky (part of Google Earth for the desktop) and explore with the convenience of a larger screen.
The Kepler Field of View overlay changes automatically with Kepler's seasonal rotation (subtle changes, though).

The Messier objects are a set of astronomical objects first listed by French astronomer Charles Messier in 1771. Messier was a comet hunter, and was frustrated by objects which resembled but were not comets, so he compiled a list of them, in collaboration with his assistant Pierre Méchain, to avoid wasting time on them.
