Abstract

For amateur astronomers who want to practice their constellation identification, the Star Tutor app is an Android Application written in Kotlin that provides users different ways to practice their constellation identification. The app presents the users with constellations rendered from real Star Catalog data, drawn dynamically and allowing multiple different modes to aid users. Unlike other applications, Star Tutor encourages the user to build their own skills so that they can independently recognize constellations rather than relying on an application to annotate the night sky for them.
