Description

Explore a 3D globe of the Moon!

Moon Atlas is an astronomy application that lets you use the mouse or pinch and finger gestures to manipulate a 3D globe of the Moon. This is a rendered sphere and not a static map image. As you zoom in more labels appear as finer detail comes into view. You can double tap on the labels to get more information about a particular feature.

Moon Atlas displays the phase and libration of the Moon from your chosen location and renders these on the globe. You can switch to a 'Globe' mode that allows you to spin the Moon around to see far side features. The feature database is searchable and can move the globe to a searched feature. The phase can be switched off and the far side is shown in a slightly darker shade of grey.

Date, time and location can be changed. There is also a realtime mode that will update to the current time.

The Moon globe can be shown with north or south at the top or inverted to suit different telescope views.

Over 1800 named features are included as well as 26 spacecraft that reached the surface of the Moon.

In addition, information about the current Moon phase and libration are provided.

What's New in Version 1.0.6

Fixed search field focus bug and added Chang'e 3 and LADEE to the spacecraft list.
