The stars

Iv seen other apps that give better pictures but you can move the screen by sliding this one let’s you know the location and by not sliding the screen around let you really get to know stars a little better and how amazing it is that people without today’s technology understood it and this app lets you do that

Best Star Ap

This is the best app I have ever used for space. It is extremely accurate and I always know where things are in the sky! If I could rate above 5 stars I would!

Great app

I use this app almost every night. It is so easy to use. Stargazing is even better when you know what you’re gazing at.
