  • International Space Station

    I always enjoy this APP, However I was watching the ISS in SE N. Carolina on 9/22/2018. For the fun of it I opened the APP and it was showing ISS on opposite side of the earth while I was watching it overhead. All other stationery celestial objects were good.
  • Fantastic!

  • App promotes fake moon colony

    By i'llpassthanks
    Today the app promoted “click here to learn more information” about the moon. Turns out they want to tell you about a moon colony called Artemis in promotion of an upcoming sci fi audiobook. Mixed in with actual, somewhat real facts about the sky... if you didn’t know better you’d think we actually had a colony of moon inhabiters run by “Jazz Bashara” aka producer Rosario Dawson. I’m so annoyed I don’t know where to begin.
  • Great App
