My dad and I have always loved astronomy and try our best to keep up with celestial events such as a solar eclipse or a planetary conjunction. However, we often forget to remind ourselves to watch the events due to being focused on work in our computers. It is the worst feeling, especially since some celestial events are once-in-a-lifetime.
What it does
Celestial Countdown is a Google Chrome extension that allows the user to input the name of a celestial event and the time it will happen in hours, minutes, and seconds. Once the countdown goes to zero, it will chime and have a pop-up window appear telling the user that it is time to view the celestial event.
How I built it
Challenges I ran into
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
I am proud that I was able to make a Google Chrome extension! I have never made one before, so it was super exciting to learn about and create.
What I learned
What's next for Celestial Countdown
I hope to incorporate an option where the user can see upcoming celestial events in their timezone so that they do not have to write in their own.
