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. Visit http://www.wolfram.com/applications/astronomer for more information and sample images.
