Last weekend I wrapped up the latest version of the Near Star Map. We’ve now got about twice the number of stars the database contained when it originally launched for Android, and there remain plenty of obscure dim stars between 35 and 50 light-years away to be added!
For this latest update, the search feature saw some improvements for clarification when well-known but distant stars are searched for, and a significant number of more distant brown dwarfs were added over and above the routine push to add more distant stars. Next quarter, if time permits, I’m interested in adding one of more features focused on exoplanets. At present, there are not quite 60 systems with confirmed exoplanets or exoplanet candidates within 50 light-years, and I’d like the Near Star Map to be able to more readily illustrate this.
