Okay now this is amazing!

This space app is awesome! I 100% know where every planet is now at different times, I saw the moon so I tired it and I know what planets were underneath and I could see the moon on the screen so it’s then correct. It also tells you where ( for example) the moon is on different times. I also really really love the music it’s so relaxing! You could just about fall asleep to it!! It’s amazing overall and if you see this review it’s really good you should download it!

Sky view light

It’s really good app for the free version/light version it was all I needed for astronomy the only problem is that the free version doesn’t come with all of the planets but other than that it is a amazing app and I highly recommend it for astronomy or stargazing, I personally use it for astronomy and a really good feature is that you can look forward in time to see where the planets or satellites are.

Amazing to see space and the sky!

I had this app for a seriously long time, I basically had it since age 5! I saw loads of stars and planets and I’m really smart on planets now. I’m glad this app has great studies and I enjoy looking at the stars and planets, I try see em’ every night! This is an awesome app, I can’t find glitches in this so, this app is wonderfully fine. I’m very glad to tell ya’ll, this is one of my top 3 favourite space study apps! Rating #5 stars! ;D
