Observational astronomy app

About This Project

This is a concept for an app for casual stargazers. It is designed to help them when organising stargazing events, and get better results from their photographs.

The users can contact friends for a stargazing event, check the conditions of the selected combination of date and location easily, and invite friends.

They can also turn their taken photos from their camera into annotated images with information about the constellations.

Main Features


My team first interviewed different stargazers. Then we categorised their needs, and also categorised the different types of stargazers according to their experience level and the purpose of their stargazing activities.

Then, targeting a specific type of stargazers, we mapped their experience during a stargazing trip.

Finally, we designed and built the app around their needs and their journey, and also did user tests to ensure usability and relevance.
