Multi-Viewpoint Smartphone AR-Based Learning System for Astronomical Observation

Ke Tian, Mamoru Endo, Mayu Urata, Katsuhiro Mouri, and Takami Yasuda
Abstract—Observational-based learning (OBL) can improve learners’ understanding of astronomical phenomena, such as the lunar phases or solar diurnal motion. This paper introduces the multi-viewpoint smartphone AR-based (M-VSAR) learning system for constructing an OBL environment for astronomical observation. We apply this concept to two learning systems: a solar observation system and a lunar observation system. We illustrate how an M-VSAR system can enhance a learner’s interest in and learning of astronomical phenomena.

Index Terms—Smartphone augmented reality, astronomy observation, lunar phases, solar motion, multi-viewpoint.
