Moon Globe

By Midnight Martian

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.

Description

Hold the Moon in your hands. Moon Globe turns your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad into a precision instrument for viewing Earth's Moon. Satellite imagery and topographic laser altimeter data are combined to render the Moon with realistic lighting in realtime 3D.

Use the multitouch screen to manipulate the view. Spin above the surface, or switch to Telescope mode to see the Moon as it appears from your location on Earth. Adjust the display time and watch the sunlight shift over the lunar landscape. A "tag cloud" floats just above the surface, labeling terrain features and spacecraft; touch any label to find out more about that feature. Moon Globe also shows you where the Moon and Sun are in the sky with its dynamic sky compass.

This sophisticated astronomy simulation is FREE so that you can learn about Earth's Moon and wow your friends with what your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad can do. For Moon Globe fans, Moon Globe HD is also available, with twice the map resolution and somewhat better rendering.

What's New in Version 2.2.4

Improved spin rate, especially for iPhone 5.

Customer Reviews

Superb App

Extremely useful app especially when out observing the moon as able to use a night mode. Love the links provided to wiki when you tap the name on a crater. Overall, excellent app.

Excellent app

This is in my opinion the best moon atlas app. I use it regularly to see what features are visible currently when I'm observing or imaging the moon through my telescope. Wouldn't be without it!

Helpful

Detailed map, helpful for observing, would like it to display extent of feature when selected perhaps. Librations helpfully displayed. Overall a joy to use.
