The Night Sky - Simply Magical

The #1 selling iPhone and iPad app comes to the Mac in this beautiful high resolution version of The Night Sky designed specifically for OS X Lion!

The Night Sky is a magical app that enables you to identify stars, planets, galaxies, constellations and even satellites. This Mac version of The Night Sky enables you to view the stars, planets, galaxies, constellations and satellites from any location in the world no matter where you are located yourself!

Here's an example - you are in London but want to know what The Night Sky in Australia looks like. No problem with The Night Sky, just position the globe over Australia, flick to star view and view the Australian sky! This will work anywhere in the world.

The Night Sky does this by using its high resolution map of the sky and location data that you provide. It then places you in a 3D sphere and allows you to look around it's totally accurate virtual Night Sky!

This special Mac edition for OS X Lion allows you to make The Night Sky expand to full screen. A great new feature as everything gets out of the way so it's just you and the sky!

So if you want to gaze up at the sky no matter where you are in the world, just load up The Night Sky on your Mac and prepare to be amazed!

The Night Sky really is simply magical!

Customer Reviews

Stargazing made easy! Highly Recommended

Love this app - once you know how to use it (all explained in the user guide) it's just incredible. Can't wait to see what will be added with the next update :)

Avoid this for iMac

I bought this for my imac but really regret it now. It might be great on an iPhone, etc, but it's rubbish on an imac. It is very, very basic with no date/time influence and poor sky detail.

Save your money.

Found it very difficult to follow…Age problem (I suppose), applied for money back
