Star Odyssey

randyl
Ever used Google's Sky Map to identify a star, but wanted to know more than just the star's name? Star Odyssey fills that gap.

It includes:
* Over 70 of the brightest stars in the night sky
* Pronunciation guides (it's not obvious how to pronounce many star names)
* Origin of the name (the meaning of a star's name is often insightful)
* Brightness and distance from Earth
* Interesting astronomical facts
* Includes all stars displayed in Google Sky Map
* Integration with the SkEye planetarium app for locating stars (Unfortunately Google Sky Map does not support this feature)
* Algol Eclipse schedule (find out when to watch the Demon Star fade and re-brighten)

Keywords
* astronomy, star chart, star map, sky map, star guide, algol minima calculator
