What is Where is M13? for Mac

Where is M13? is an astronomy application that helps you visualize the 3-D locations and physical properties of common deep sky objects. This perspective is rarely discussed in astronomy books and software products on the market, which focus mainly on apparent data such as an object's look, visual magnitude, apparent size, right ascension and declination. Where is M13? aims to address this important lack.

Using paired face-on and edge-on views, the Galaxy View shows you where that cluster or nebula you enjoy viewing in your telescope is actually located relative to the center and plane of the Galaxy, providing a unique three-dimensional perspective of the Galaxy.

The Object List provides important physical information about the objects you choose to list. Galactic latitudes and longitudes as well as luminosities, true sizes, and distances are displayed. A quick click of a checkbox brings up a display of the equivalent apparent data.

The Sky View shows you where the objects displayed in the Galaxy View are located in the night sky, using a star map plotted in galactic coordinates. This use of galactic coordinates, rather than the more common equatorial coordinates, helps you really understand the relationship between what you see in the night sky and an object's galactic location.

We think you'll find that Where is M13? literally adds another dimension to your night sky observing. Enjoy exploring this new perspective!

Unfortunately the app hasn't been updated for some seven years. It wants me to install legacy java, which I don't fancy at all. I hope the author will do an update to bring the app in line with the current minimum OS requirements......

I think it is a great program that helps me demonstrate to students scale in the universe. I use it as an addition to Deep Space Explorer, which offers a great view on the universe, with the Milky Way in the centre. Well worth my money :-).

Bah, now it's neither beautiful nor free. On a more serious note, it's definitely not worth $29.
