We make it simple to find out what our space-based telescopes are observing and when. SpaceCalNYC plots each observation against a beautiful image of our galaxy, lets visitors click targets to get additional details, and links to images when available. It provides a calendar-style listing of observations and the data can be filtered by date, observed object, or observing telescope. The database is updated daily. Finally, if text files are your thing it lets you export observations as plain text.

This project is solving the My Space Cal challenge.


A full featured replacement for myspacecal.com with better visualization of data and easier data export for scientists.
