This project is solving the ArduSat challenge.

In this project we are going to detect the Sun and the Stars using the OpenCV which is an Open Sourced Computer Vision Softwere. The main objective of the program will be to identify the sun and the stars and from them identify the time of day based on the colour of the sun as seen from the earth. We first have to get the data of the sun and then identify the time of the day using the colour so identified. I have also implemented Serial communication to any device and command it to track the sun position while the day elapses.
