We choose this challenge to focus on how to display the information differently then what is done by myspacecal.com We started understanding what equatorial coordinates, declination, right ascension, vernal equinox, the celestial coordinate system meant. It was very pleasant to be able to be exposed to a different domain. We created a web application that displays information from SWIFT satellite (but it could be expanded to multiple satellites) and display them on the celestial sphere.

This project is solving the My Space Cal challenge.


Working on data visualization for the current myspacecal.
