An astronomy application for emulating eclipsing stars
Interactive binary star application
Nightfall is an astronomy application for emulation of eclipsing stars(2)
Nightfall is an astronomy application for science, education, and fun. It can produce animated views of eclipsing binary stars, calculate synthetic lightcurves and radial velocity curves, and eventually determine the best-fit model for a given set of observational data of an eclipsing binary star system.
Nightfall comes with a user guide, and a set of observational data for several eclipsing binary star systems.
