Luminos App Description

Luminos is the award-winning, all-in-one astronomy app that goes beyond simple stargazing by combining millions of celestial objects into a beautifully-rendered space simulation to amaze you! Our enthusiastic customers range from hobbyists to professional astronomers, and everyone in between. And now, Luminos features the largest catalog available on mobile, with more than 113 million stars! Whether you want to admire ancient constellations, watch satellites soaring overhead, find out what that brilliant dot is on the horizon, or recreate eclipses, Luminos has what you need. Browse the largest deep space image catalog of any mobile app, anywhere, or track 3D meteor showers now or from the past. Travel through time, identify craters on the moon, fly through space, watch the solar system in motion from high above, or see the multitudes of asteroids orbiting perilously close to our planet. Hold Luminos up against the sky and it will effortlessly guide you to find any star or planet. You can even get live sky charts and satellite alerts on your Apple Watch! Luminos makes it all easy and fun. Instead of buying many apps to get all of these features, Luminos includes everything in one low price. There are no in-app purchases to nibble away at your wallet and there's no advertising to distract you from views of the heavens. When you're ready to go even further, Luminos will be ready with you. If you're fortunate enough to have a computer-controllable telescope, then Luminos can command it for you to find objects quickly and easily. Detailed data on every object is easily available within Luminos, even without an Internet connection. Powerful planning tools help you make the most of your evenings by showing you exactly what will be visible tonight or any night in the future. Get out there and start exploring!

  • Just getting better all the time…

    By RoJoWo
    Every time I open this app, I am reminded of the genius minds that were able to put so much into such a tiny space; am grateful to John Stephen and Brian Albers for continued interest in bacon-wrapping this most excellent app. Nî Hâo, and Namaste !
  • Fantastic tool!

    By BadPaddy
    This application is so powerful. As an amateur I am able to view, track and monitor celestial object I could only dream about a few short years ago.
  • Luminos is great

    I have been using different various apps. I have two telescopes that I use and two other apps to interface with them. I am setting up this app to talk to my main telescope. I like all the things this app does and the sats. Can be flown on around the earth. Many other things too. Thanks B

  • Fun app

    By Fief puddle
    This is a very fun and informative app. Most features can be learned simply by tapping the buttons on the screen. Tapping on a star, planet or any object on the screen will bring up the name and basic info about it. If that is not enough, go to the browser then support and select user's guide and there are professional informative videos on how to operate the app. The Video on the basics is slightly more then 5 min. So it won't waste your time. Selecting a planet, the app will fly through the solar system and orbit the selected planet. Features on it can be selected for more information. Or select a satellite and go "ride" it, So you can see the earth from that perspective. Fun to use and a serious astronomy tool also. My favorite astronomy app. I found the Andromeda galaxy a couple of nights ago using binoculars and was able to look up all the information on this app. It was really a delight to find and learn something new. Update: I am still using this app a year later. I just found comet 46P Wirtanen, tonight using the app. I'm still using this app the most for looking at the night sky with binoculars. I have tried two other apps, but they just don't work well for me.
  • Great Astro App
