Where Is the Moon?

Postby corbyguy » Mon Jan 28, 2008 6:37 pm

On the map shown on the homepage there are symbols showing where the Sun and the planets are but there is no symbol showing where the Moon is?

If you type Moon in the search object box on the homepage a box comes up with "search for Moon" not found.

Could it be possible to have a symbol showing where the Moon is?

Regards

Hi Jamie,

Welcome to the SKY-MAP!
There's no Moon on our map yet. Currently the only solar system objects you can find here are planets. We are planning to extends sky-map towards better coverage of solar objects and near Earth objects, even add tracking of minor and artificial objects (like asteroids, comets, satellites, probes and so on)
So stay tuned :)

With all due respect, the sun and Pluto are both found here, neither of which are planets. The sun (obviously) is a star, while Pluto has been reclassified as a dwarf planet--no longer a true planet.

Stephen, poeple have been brought up to believe Pluto is a main planet, and is still classified as a planet, but a small planet, hense the word ( Dwarf )

When will the other dwarf planets besides Pluto be included? With including the dwarf planets, astroids, comets, our moon, probes(and possibly other man-made objects), and known Keiper Belt objects, wouldn't the sky get a little cluttered?

BTW, the Sun is also included.

I suggest a tick box for objects you wanna see or not.
