Most people are pre-occupied with what’s going on in their heads and tend to forget the true beauty of the universe which has to do with the interaction of everything in this world and beyond. From the skies to the stars, the moon to the sun all these are amazing phenomena which ought to be pondered upon, but are clouded by our daily desire.

This is where Celestial Dynamics LTD comes in. They have exploited the beauties of the better parts of our daily lives which include the cosmos as a whole and the constellations as well to come up with a new app dubbed the Cosmic Watch.

The Cosmic watch is an interactive 3-dimensional app which doesn’t just operate as a real time world clock, but has the whole exoskeleton of the earth and stars fitted into it which in turns gives you a comprehensive view of the galaxy and how its entities interact with themselves.

As you now know, tapping on a location reveals the name of the Country/city and the time as well but there are some really hard to tap spots on the globe (am looking at you Banjul, The Gambia). However, once you have gotten these locations, you can favorite places and save them as well to easily go back to them.
