With 1,234,567 astronomic objects, the Ascendents Astronomy Database combines catalogs and attemps to resolve data inconsistencies by bringing awareness new discoveries. In addition to CSV downloads, the AADB has API capabilities for retrieval of space object records and scripting support for major organizations to import their data.

ABOUT ASCENDENTS.net ASTRONOMY
- Mission Statement -
Ascendents Astronomy's mission is to confirm a consensus for the boundaries of the universe, the galaxy, the Ascendents sphere, and other features -- settling data inconsistencies throughout catalogs, for example: a blue group of stars near Taurus is mistaken for being close to the Ascendents Sphere when in actuality they are the stars located in the Large Magellenic Cloud (LMC). That discovery has brought into question the believability of space catalogs. It has given reason to second-guess the data everyone uses and with scutiny, to challenge and track the integrity of the information. The Ascendents Astronomy Database (AADB) was created thinking about that goal.
Thank you for visiting.

Ascendents Level = DGMD = round the distance, strlen * 10
For the sun, average the DGMG for all grid squares, and calculate the distance with that.

Here's a widget:
Type a star name, when it doesn't exist say this record cannot be found in our database. To suggest it as a star, enter your email address for the record, you will be sent an email to verify creation of the record.

-- WHEN SOMEONE CLICKS TO VOTE, enter email, check your email to confirm the vote.
-- When a record item has more than half of all votes, then its value is consensus [green checkmark, purple question mark],
-- When a record is created with mass_votes -1, it means that it overwrote the old value
-----when it overwrites the old value, it needs to make a record in the aac_public_log of "2022-03-12 Per record 202208_1029841, Mass changed from 1.23 to 1.24"
A conscious effort was made to be accurate and understand space with some logical fashion. Objects in the Ascendents Astronomy Catalog (AAC) aim to be insightful for holistic exploration of the universe.
