Scientific Astronomer Released for Macintosh


Scientific Astronomer, the Mathematica-based astronomical tool, is now
available for the Macintosh, as well as for Windows 95/NT and Unix.

Scientific Astronomer is a comprehensive package of functions and
plotting routines that allows even the novice to produce spectacular
color star charts, planet plots, or even a planisphere customized for
an exact latitude. Several chart projections are available and can
easily be customized for an arbitrary skyline or special labeling.
Track satellites (including Mir and the GPS satellites) and predict
their best visibility; predict eclipses, occultations, and transits;
and create umbral and penumbral track plots. Scientific Astronomer
requires Mathematica 3 or later.
