This planetarium in your pocket makes it easy to discover the wonders of space wherever you go. Day or night, just aim your device skyward to see a live 3D map of the heavens, complete with beautifully illustrated constellations, stars, planets, and satellites. A special night mode helps you read the map in the dark, while integrated weather reports show the best times for stargazing. You can even have notifications alert you to future astronomical events.
Put the universe in your pocket!
The NightSky app is astronomy at your finger tips on your tablet or phone. It gives easy access to view the planets and a multitude of other objects in our night sky and their orbits. Just match up objects on the app with the actual object in the night sky and the night sky becomes perfectly clear to pinpoint other objects of interest. It’s like a road map! I found, starting with Jupiter, I can find other stars an objects much easier.
The “Glass constellations” feature, gives perspective to the stars positions and their relationships to each constellation...amazing! The effects you have at your fingertips to view deep space, the sky view in dark rural places as opposed to suburban viewing with ambient light pollution, helps a beginner to easily identify objects. I was enthralled to see the orbits of satellites, like the International Space Station and other monitoring devices and space stations orbit earth in real time! The information about stars along with being able to pull objects right out of the sky, turn those objects on their axis and read information about them, is absolutely impressive. A must for classroom teachers and a joy for amateur astronomers! NightSky app measures up to, and exceeds my every expectation!

Pure Universal Magic
I love this app especially the X-ray and other Light options, for just because our optical human eyes see things a certain way doesn’t make that all there is. Even other animals from our very same Mother Earth see Ultraviolet light and other aspects of the light spectrum. To paraphrase Nikola Tesla(and other great genius cosmonauts): The Universe is not dark empty space but rather Energy and Light as the Aether is everywhere. Just because we can’t see these aspects of the spectrum through your average telescope doesn’t make them unreal. So Thank You especially for putting the X-ray and other light options in your app, it’s very Awesome to be able to see these things with the physical eyes as well. Some of us are still only using our two outer eyes and forget to use all three. As the Mind’s Eye, the Third Eye- the pineal gland, is very real; fully functional in those who seek it, and can help us to experience the true nature of the Universes inside and outside. Especially when we keep the protection of the Universal Creator in our minds and hearts before traveling. Universal Love to Everything and Everyone- as from my(and many others) perspectives We Are All One. For the Entire Universe(in and outside) is always here with All of Us.
