This app is one of the main reasons I bought an iPhone. It does not disappoint. It was my first app download. by Meat horse
This app is amazing and so accurate, it's unbelievable. Whoever created it is a genius. I have to take an atmosphere and space class and the app helped me study, learn every single constellation, as well as other things like moon phases and everything. I can't say enough about it! Also, the graphics are incredible :) by Maura&Emmy

Customer ReviewsFor fellow Amateurs/Intermediates (5 stars)
Absolutely THE astronomy app for all upper amateurs and intermediate stargazers. If you believe God created this place the awe is magnified as you scan through your night sky discovering most of the "stars" are in reality open clusters or galaxies. Scan the calendar and find out about astonishing events you may be able to witness from your backyard. Fast-forward time and look at the future sky. See real pictures of the wonders beyo
