Physical Mars

Physical Mars


"Physical Mars" is designed to assist telescope observation and imaging of the planet Mars. Martian ephemerides are provided for real-time or a selected date. Mars is illustrated in the form of a mercator map and a 3D globe showing day & night on the planet. Sub-solar and Sub-Earth positions are plotted on the map. Further provided, a view of Mars' elongation with respect to Earth and Sun.

Physical Mars comes with a small database of major and popular features, all with images.

Since the application uses a hi-res map of Mars, your phone will need some guts (1GHz CPU min.)

A great app for use at the scope Physical Mars is a great app for anyone observing Mars with a telescope. It has both globe views and map views with plenty of detailed information. The map can display labels of the major Martian features and landing sites. Maps showing day and night temperature, and topography can also be displayed.

Neat little pocket map This app has an excellent variety of maps and pinpoint temperature and elevation data. Though I think the map resolutions could be made just little bit higher for zooming into craters and valleys.

Very Cool (3D??) Graphics!!!! :-) This application is very very informative & educational!! But it would be cooler if you added a simulated surface 3D Graphics (of popular locations on Mars)!!!! Add a martian annual calender & a Martian (24 1/2 HR) clock!! Then this App would be super super cool & then I would then upgrade the rating to 5 Stars!!!! :) Really!!! OK???
