Well this is cool! I downloaded it and will try it out tonight.
A new program will let amateur astronomers detect exoplanets – worlds outside our solar system – by observing nearby bright stars and recording faint dips in their brightness caused by transits from planets in orbit around them.
The program is called Open Source Differential Photometry Code for Amateur Astronomy Research (OSCAAR) and was developed in part with NASA funding. It is available for free online at: oscaar.github.io...
