Developer's Description

Organize stargazing events.

Meet Star Gazers has been built for those who love the night sky. Whether you are a beginner or an experienced astronomer, observing the night sky is always more enjoyable when you are not alone. Meet Star Gazers helps you find other people passionate about astronomy in your vicinity and facilitates the discovery and organization of star parties in your region.

ASTRONOMY CLUBS, OBSERVATORIES & ASSOCIATIONS

Meet Star Gazers is well suited for outreach activities run by astronomy clubs, observatories and associations that promote astronomy to everyone curious about astronomy. I believe that Meet Star Gazers will save about 30 minutes in the process of organizing a star party compared to the current method of using multiple tools to achieve the same objective.

INTERACTIVE MAP

An interactive map helps you intuitively find star parties close to you along with driving isochrones. A satellite view lets you study the terrain before choosing a location for a star party. Meet Star Gazers also provides realtime cloud cover and seeing information for each star party. Anyone can organize a star party. You need not be part of a club or observatory. A simple long press at the precise location of where you would like to organize the star party, will open a short form. Enter some basic information and you are good to go.

REALTIME MESSAGING

Each star gazing event has a dedicated messenger channel to you help you interact with other participants and organize your star party efficiently.

PRECISION WEATHER INFORMATION

I have partnered with the best weather data provider in the world: Meteoblue. This gives me the possibility to provide reliable and relevant weather information to my users directly within Meet Star Gazers. This includes seeing (atmospheric turbulence), cloud cover in visual format and felt temperature.

LUNAR PHASE INFORMATION

Through my partnership with Meteoblue, I also provide lunar phase information within Meet Star Gazers. Since the moon and its phases play a significant role on the kind of observation you can do on a given night, it was a logical step for me to provide this information to my users in the app.

LIGHT POLLUTION MAP

Since light pollution plays an important role in selecting a location for stargazing, I have partnered with the Light Pollution Science & Technology Institute to provide my users with the 2016 World Atlas of Night Sky Brightness. I have calibrated this map to the Bortle scale to make it easier for beginners to understand and use the map.

I hope that Meet Star Gazers gives you more opportunities to observe the night sky. If you have any suggestions or remarks, please write to me at contact@darkskymap.com.
