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!

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.

MoonTrajectory.net allows you to display the future trajectories of 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. *

  • Use the calendar of the moon phases.
  • Use the agenda to plan your future pictures. *
  • This way, you will know when to return to the site to take your picture to the maximum effect. *
  • Use Google Maps to pinpoint its exact location. *
* Take a photo.
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, ...
