ClearView project

ClearView project

Get out there. Get a ClearView.

Oluwadamilola O, Meriem B, Erika J, Jessica B and Brianna H

With the combined efforts of our brilliant team, we have created ClearView, a website to aid in the journey to understand more about space. We designed ClearView to allow stargazers and space enthusiasts of all ages and experience levels to have access to all things space in a simple, comprehensive website that aims to make learning about space easier. Our ultimate goal is to educate the general population to make space seem more approachable and less intimidating.

Information regarding astronomy can be intimidating to new hobbyists. The information is scattered between several websites and the information can be confusing and too in-depth for beginners. Also, when people find information on space events, they are often in the dark on whether or not the event is even visible from their location.

From tracking current events such as the Juno mission or the Perseid meteor shower in a comprehensive calendar, to a map that locates various dark spots and places with minimal light pollution across the country, we hope to provide users with the tools for an optimal (as well as informative) viewing experience.

Our website had over 4,000 lines of code so our most prominent issue was syntax errors and bugs that were in our code. Trying to find the error within our code was really tough; the way that we found to find the bugs that worked for us was to switch computers. By doing this we were able to get a fresh perspective on the code and were able to fix the errors.
