As part of the 2015 NASA SpaceApps Challenge, we interviewed a number of professional and amateur astronomers from around the world in order to identify the most prevailing problems and needs when acquiring timely notifications and data regarding transient astronomical events (supernovae, gamma and x-ray pulses from neutron stars and black holes, etc). Based on their feedback, we created a Feedly-like application that would allow astronomers to access and be alerted to up-to-date events from data sources that would normally have to be accessed manually via a web browser. Our demo included live data from the NASA CRTS survey and GCN network and included integration with the Pebble smartwatch.
