If you’re looking for the moon’s most mysterious lunar rock, there’s a handy app for that.
Moon Explorer can be downloaded on Apple’s App Store for free, and its creators are working on an Android version.
Its creator, Jason Karp, explains that Moon Explorer will use “moon dust” (an invisible, invisible type of rock) to help spot and map the Moon’s surface.
The app uses its own algorithms to find objects in the Moon, but its users can send in a photo or video of a surface or a crater to get a detailed view.
If you want to see if a lunar rock is there, Karp suggests looking at it with a “laser pointer” or “spectrometer” to see the faintest details.
The best part is that the app will take photos of each piece of lunar rock and then compare them with other images to get the most accurate picture.
Moon Finder will be available for Android devices in October 2018.
