Welcome to MoonTrajectory.net!
This free app will enable you to
visualize where the moon will run its
course while watching through your
phone.
You can now plan:
Where and when the moon will rise
or set.
When it will be hidden by a building
or a relief.
When it will be seen according to a
specific axis/angle.
* Activate the water mode.
You can now tell where the moon will
be...
...if reflected in water!

Use the moon phases calendar:
Learn at a glance on which days the
moon will be full (or conversely when
the night will be moonless).
The upper-left drawing shows
precisely which phase of the moon
you will see on the chosen date.
Drag or tap to change the date and
thus pre-visualize the moon
trajectory in the weeks or months to
come.
Drag or tap to change the time and
make the moon run along its path on
the selected night.
You can also set a particular date
using the calendar.
Use the "now" button to get back
quickly to the present date and time
settings.
The moon in augmented reality
Look through your phone and see the path of the moon.
Find out if the moon will be full or what phase it will be in.
Plan the moonrise and moonset times, not only on the horizon,
but also on a building or a relief.
Travel in time and see what path the moon will follow in the
months to come.
Predict the moon reflection in water. *
Take and save photos. *
Check afterwards the different trajectories of the moon for a
whole year. *

with the moon.

You can then change the date and consult the moon path
without having to keep the phone steady.
Click a second time on the "photo" button to go back to the
live video mode.
* Use the "disk" menu to organize your pictures:
Load a picture, and consult the different moon paths at
different dates as if you were still there.
Change the date, and save the picture as planned for a new
date.
* Use the "export" function to add your photo, including
the drawing of the path, to the picture gallery of your
phone.
From that moment on, you will be able to use it like any
other picture on your phone: transfer it on your computer
using USB, email it, tweet it, ...
* You can consult your saved photos as thumbnails.
Use the arrows to change the page. Drag vertically to look
at a whole page.
* Select a picture to obtain more details.
Click on the magnifying glass to display it full-screen and
consult the various paths of the moon on that picture, as if
you had just taken it.
* Sorting the saved photos by planned date (that is the date
you chose before saving) enables using the application as
an agenda.
Use this agenda to plan when to return to a place you want
to make a picture of.
Click on the map to display with Google Maps the spot
where the picture was taken.
