    App for Tracking Asteroids?

    Hi guys!

    Donno if this question is appropriate for this forum. Anyways, what are the most user friendly and simplistic Apps for beginners, to track near-Earth Asteroids and view their paths that intercept Earth's orbit? I prefer a PC app, else an Android one is ok.

    Thanks for any help!

    Imo this would be best created as a web site.
    Where you are going to need access to the data via api and such.

    Looks like NASA is already on the case.

    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    Thanks for the link. But I like an App which I can visually track their orbits, like they do on YouTube. I have some apps like "Asteroid Alert" and "Asteroid Tracker", but they either are too complicated, or they don't have a GUI to track the orbits. Maybe I should learn and get use to the complicated ones.
