** Now Free! Although Comet ISON did not live up to expectations, we want anyone interested to enjoy the app and learn about comets. **
Find Comet ISON in the sky, then launch into space and fly along with the comet!
Explore and learn about this unique comet in immersive, holographic 3D.
AppPicker calls it "a stunning 3D visualization that will have your mouth agape!"
"Beautifully rendered 3D views" says The Unofficial Apple Weblog (tuaw.com).
Comet ISON is headed to the center of the solar system at the end of 2013. It could provide quite a show, or it might burn up on its dangerous journey around the Sun. Brought to you by the creators of the award-winning astronomy app "Luminos", this app gives you all you need to follow Comet ISON (C/2012 S1) on its amazing journey, exclusively on iPad and iPhone:
• Fly through space and time to ride along with the comet for a 3D view of its path through the Solar System.
• Explore bodies in space with a unique 3D holographic motion effect.
• Jump to important dates on the Comet ISON timeline, including its closest points to Earth.
• Hold up your device and use it to locate the comet in the sky, wherever you happen to be at the moment.
• Learn about the origin of comets, their history, naming, and composition, as well as fun facts and videos about them.
• Share your views of the comet with friends and family.
This could be a once-in-a-lifetime astronomical event. See why AppPicker says "If you only download one app for the rest of 2013, make it this one."

What's New in Version 1.2
New! The Learn area of the app now includes sections for the latest Comet ISON News and Images.
Good comet facts and catchy bg music
The only negative I can find is an error in speed calculation when selecting the Spitzer point of reference. Other than that, top notch!
Easy to use. Fun going into space to see the comet.
Compass feature rarely works
This app had promise but it rarely works properly. It doesn't follow your movements 90% of the time. I want my money back
