Star Odyssey

Star Odyssey


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

* Bug Fixes and Performance Improvements
* Added Day Theme
* Support Manual Location

Really nice. I like how it is integrated with SkEye, which is also a great app.

What little it does it does well Very useful for learning about specific stars, but rarely helpful in practice. Amateur astronomers don't spend much time looking at individual stars (although Algol & Albireo are exceptions). OTOH, non-Amateur Astronomers don't generally need the information in this app. This would be great if more object types were included. An example that quickly come to mind are planets (especially including low-number minor planets like 1-Ceres). Another example type is the various moons in the solar system.

Great Star Info! Complements the SkEye app very nicely! Only wish it had better star catalogue numbering information and linked to Wikipedia.
