We can all get a little puzzled with time. Sometimes we have no idea where it goes, whereas there are other times when it goes by so fast. Yet one this is for sure…it is going at the same pace, no matter what, and the relationship between time and the cosmos is complex.
Understanding the relationship, Cosmic Watch is a unique iPad app that provides an advanced, 3D astronomical time device for the digital age.
If you are simply studying our Solar System with your pupils, or are exploring more complex strands of physics with older students, the Cosmic Watch app allows you to explore planetary positions in the past, present and future, along with determining the exact time of the sunrise or sunset with the horizon. Other features of this interactive iOS app include an advanced navigational alignment tool, allowing the Cosmic Watch to be set with cardinal points and experience real-time positions of planets in the sky.
This is an impressive app, being useful for those wanting to explore and discover alignments within the solar system, providing an accurate portrayal of positions in time, calculated predictions of positions, as well as a beautiful illustrative execution that helps locate planetary positions in the sky.
