Galaxy Map - General Info

  • administrators

    This is the forum for the Galaxy Map mobile application. Currently on Android and iOS.

    It contains a 3D model of our Galaxy, the Milky Way with neighboring dwarf galaxies (such as Sagittarius and the Canis Major Overdensity) and stellar streams. Touching a structure of the galaxy will take you to the wiki page and show you some of its components (nebulae, star clusters, supernovae). Photos are taken by NASA spacecraft and ground based telescopes like Hubble Space Telescope, Chandra X-Ray, Herschel Space Observatory and the Spitzer Space Telescope.
    Many of the components also have a 3D model generated from one of its 2D pictures.
