Math & Science - UltimateAstroWidget

Description: The UltimateAstroWidget combines 3 essential features for any serious astronomical observer: various times, airmass curve, and observability. The times provided are the Universal Time (UT), the Local Sidereal Time (LST), the Julian date, the Modified Julian Data and a day count. The LST depends on the longitude. Hence a list of observatories all over the worls is provided. Anyone can submit, by email, a new observatory (a feature to add custom ones is on its way).
The airmass curve tab allow to compute, for a given set of coordinates, that can be retrieved through the Simbad object name resolver, the curve of airmass, at a given date, on the given (observatory) location.
Similarly, the observability tab allows to compute the observability of an object on a given location, between two given dates. Data and plots can be saved.
