Informative and Educational
It's a great simple reference for our solar system. A handy pocket guide for what is where, when it will rise or set and how long twilight will last. All references for your time and location. Or you can even use it to inform yourself about the planetary positions in another time or location.
Great app - just be careful your phone case doesn’t have a magnetic closure. Will skew the 3D sky - bummer if you have your camera and telescope pointed in the wrong direction as a result..
The moon is in two different places
I wasn't mislead. I apologise. The moon is in fact not in two different places.
