Where is M13?

Where is M13?

Where is M13? helps you visualize the locations and physical properties of deep sky objects in and around the Galaxy.

Using paired face-on and edge-on views of the Galaxy, this application shows you where that cluster or nebula is actually located relative to the center and plane of the Galaxy ó a three-dimensional perspective.

Where is M13? is useful for both at home and in the field. At home, used together with a star atlas or observing guide, this software helps visualize the 3D nature of the Galaxy. In the field, it can enhance your viewing experience by supplying the missing third dimension to your 2D telescopic or binocular views. Where is M13? is particularly useful during public outreach events for explaining the large scale structure of the Galaxy and showing guests where the objects they view are actually located.
