Whether you want to admire ancient constellations, watch satellites soaring overhead, find out what that brilliant dot is on the horizon, or recreate eclipses, Luminos has what you need.
Browse the largest deep space image catalog of any mobile app, anywhere, or track 3D meteor showers now or from the past. Travel through time, identify craters on the moon, fly through space, watch the solar system in motion from high above, or see the multitudes of asteroids orbiting perilously close to our planet. Hold Luminos up against the sky and it will effortlessly guide you to find any star or planet.
You can even get live sky charts and satellite alerts on your Apple Watch! Luminos makes it all easy and fun.
Instead of buying many apps to get all of these features, Luminos includes everything in one low price. There are no in-app purchases to nibble away at your wallet and there's no advertising to distract you from views of the heavens.
When you're ready to go even further, Luminos will be ready with you.

Detailed data on every object is easily available within Luminos, even without an Internet connection. Powerful planning tools help you make the most of your evenings by showing you exactly what will be visible tonight or any night in the future.

What's New in Version 8.3.1
Fixed a crash which could happen during pinch zooming on iOS9.
Improved performance when loading multiple images on iOS 9.
Positively the best!!!
This is a 10 out of 5 star app. I own 98% of the astronomy apps available. This outshines them all and is worth the $10. It has features the others don't. I will pop in and out of the others when I'm viewing the night sky but I spend much more time in Luminous during the day studying the sky and what I can see in future days
My go-to app for space and astronomy research!
Hands down the best Astronomy app that you can have. It's pretty accurate with the satellite and similar earth orbit objects that come across your location overhead. Definitely worth the money to buy!
Schedule for satellites going overhead
Better than star walk. List of every satellite going overhead based on location. Can set up alerts. Seeing the ISS going over you is incredible.
