This project is solving the Transient Watch – Daily News on Active Neutron Stars and Black Holes on Your Mobile Phone challenge. Description
By pushing express news about the brightening of high-energy objects, we aim both to speed up high-energy astronomer’s research and to enlighten many fans of astronomy about activity in space that involves high-energy bands.
Our system is composed of three main component.
・batch system: which scrapes Swift/Fermi/MAXI Web sites, collects much light curve data about transient objects, analyses them, and derive several candidate objects which show symptoms of increasing brightness.
・API back-end: which return the lightcurves from our database in response to the request from App front-end.
・iOS front-end App: which notifies you about brightening objects and show their information such as lightcurves.
