Astrolabe Clock is an astronomical clock inspired by the astrolabe, an ancient astronomical instrument used to tell time and to predict the location of the Sun, stars and planets. This modern interpretation gives a view of the sky showing at a glance the time of day, day of year, and the location in the sky of the Sun, Moon, planets and stars. Astrolabe Clock also gives the time of sunrise and sunset, the phase of the Moon, transit times for the Sun, Moon, planets and stars, and can be used to show the occurrence of solar and lunar eclipses.
What's New in Version 1.11
New USER SUGGESTED features:
- Local Apparent Sidereal Time displayed
- Ecliptic Poles shown
- Option to reverse East and West directions. Use this when in the "North" projection to show time increasing clockwise as on a traditional astrolabe instrument.
- Fixed error in the location of the boundaries between zodiac signs
- Settings button now consistent with iOS 8 style
- Other minor bug fixes
Simple and effective
Been using it for years. No waiting for a heavy app to load, no looking like a weirdo pointing your phone at the sky. A 2-second glance and you know what you're looking at.
A very simple and efficient app. The chart is easily understandable, which helps me to quickly locate the brightest objects in the night sky, prior to setting up my telescope. Thumbs up!!
So cool !!
The mini skyline right in my hand ! So intuitive with great menus and settings !!
So awesomely simple and functional.
Would be nice to set an alarm for upcoming sidereal time, and full moon alerts.
Great App man !
