  • Exactly what I wanted

    By brizhehuru
    This is a good solid app that provides basic AND detailed information.
  • Dark Sky Finder

    By Bosconian77
    I selected this app specifically for the integrated dark sky finder. My understanding was to really enjoy stargazing, one must be in a “dark sky” location. So, my first move was to locate a dark sky area near me but the feature was not readily accessible. I had to email fir support. However, support was excellent as I got a response within hours. I really appreciated that. I would have given 5 stars if only they would make the dark sky locator accessible from the home page. I would still recommend this app to everyone.

    I love this app. It maps the sky and shows all of the constellations and you can tap on stars and it tells you about them and shows novas and more deep in space. It shows what is below the horizon and will be rising and the music to is really nice. Thanks guys
  • Not up to date & shows litter

    By AppleOclock
    Recent news says Teegarden has been studied for years but it’s not searchable. This, coupled w adding spaceX starlink litter is just more propaganda in app form.
  • amazing! i use it all the time.

    By Sophie119
    as an astronomy enthusiast this was the perfect app! i live in a highly light-polluted area so seeing what i might be able to see is really interesting and has helped me memorize and pick out constellations. i have very few complaints, but i think i may have found a glitch. i played around with the years, and went back to -8000, in which at 6/18 10:55 A.M. the moon is seen to be enormous. i’m not sure what’s happening, as on other days near the -8000 mark it is seen as extremely small. weird glitches, i assume!

  • Great guide if you look to the sky

    By JLA930
    Wonderful, easy to use app. So much info, beautiful graphics. I’m hoping the developer reads this and can tell me what the awesome music is called, so I can see if I can download it in iTunes.
