Overview:

Taking up a little over 320KB of space, AstroHTML packs a tremendous amount of astronomical data into an electronic reference you can take anywhere. Included is:

Detailed data about the 1,000 brightest stars, including stellar magnitude, right ascension and declination;
A set of twelve star charts showing the position of the major constellations throughout the year;
A helpful glossary of astronomical terms; and
175 links to astronomy-related web sites that you can surf via Pocket Internet Explorer.

The Star Atlas Constellation Index

By clicking on the Atlas button, you are immediately transported to an index of the constellations. Just clicking on the constellation name will jump you to the Star Atlas entries for that constellation. Click anywhere on the image below to see the sample entry for Cassiopeia.

Sample Star Atlas Entries for Cassiopeia

1,000 of the brightest stars in the night sky are listed by constellation, complete with name, magnitude, right ascension and declination.

Star Chart Index

Want to see what constellations are visible in the sky tonight? Simply pull up the star chart index, then tap on the date nearest to today. You'll be linked to a detailed star chart

Sample Star Chart

You'll see the outlines of the constellations, which are marked with letters corresponding to a legend which names each constellation. For example, "a" on the star chart is Ursa Minor (tap on the chart below to jump to the sample legend screen).

The Glossary of Astronomical Terms

If you're an amateur astronomer or student, you'll love AstroHTML's glossary! This is a complete listing of terms and their meanings, from "Aberration, Chromatic" to "Zodiac".
