Astronomy Daily.Com offers real time astronomical data tailored to the
viewer's location and time zone. The personalized front page presents a
chart of tonight's sky. Diagrams allow users to view the planets in their
orbits. Educators and students can find images of today's moon and its phase
on the calendar, plus data dealing with its current position and its
physical and orbital characteristics. Phil Harrington, a supervisor at the
Brookhaven National Laboratory, provides two monthly articles; the first
assesses a phenomenon in the sky that can be observed with binoculars and
the second discusses a phenomenon in the Deep Sky. Viewers can also
participate in many discussion forums with other interested astronomers.
Although users are required to register in order to view the customized
site, no personal identification is requested. [RME]
