powered by Intel® Atom™ Processors. Extraordinary, real-time night sky maps and stunning 3D images reveal the majesty of the planets and stars right on mobile device screens.
The award-winning app uses GPS tracking to identify astral bodies by simply pointing the tablet at one point in the sky. It provides a catalog of galaxies, nebulae and over 600,000 stars in a real-time, zoomable sky map. Magnificent 3D renderings of our solar system, complete with realistic landscapes, offer truly spectacular recreations of the view on other planets. Plus, a host of asterisms and illustrations of the constellations from several cultures round out the extensive knowledge of space contained within the app.
Now tablet users can witness the stunning night sky from a variety of astronomical vantage points, all on their high-resolution screens. The lightweight portability of these impressive tablets makes them the smart choice for stargazing. As part of the Intel® Developer Zone, Noctua Software had access to extensive business and technical resources.
“The goal of Stellarium is to reproduce the experience you would get by watching the night sky with naked eyes or a telescope, as realistically as possible", says Guillaume Chéreau, founder of Noctua Software. “The Stellarium Mobile Sky Map app uses the sensitive touch capabilities of Android* tablets with Intel Atom Processors so that users explore the visual wonders of space.”
