    I don’t know if I’m an amateur astronomer or what you would call it I am just fascinated with the wonders of the night sky. I heard about this app on a field trip with my daughters school and thought why not give it a try? Amazing and mind blowing are the first two words that come to mind. If you love to learn new things and have even a small interest in what goes on over our head as the world turns then definitely download this app(you will most certainly appreciate it ) and hold your phone up high to take a look at the night sky it is not falling it’s always there and anyone can see it from any where AMAZING

    What great way to see the heavens all mapped out what He has done. The placements of the stars and the planets, who ever knew that these are arranged in a way that we can all admire. For the developer who designed it, that we can all use to look up and see where all are, thanks for making it possible for us. Absolutely no problem using the technology we can all share.
  • Love this App!!!

    My family Has had this app for a number of years and it never gets old. We are always amazed by the ease in which we can explore and ponder the universe. While many are so predisposed to languish on their phone by doing email and Facebook, take a moment and use this app to see this magnificent universe the envelops and surrounds us. Amazingly our ancestors know much more about the universe then us because they took time to challenge their brains and imagine the wonders of the world.
