Browse the largest deep space image catalog of any mobile app, anywhere, or track 3D meteor showers now or from the past.

What's New in Version 8.3
Just in time for the prime meteor season, Luminos now presents 3D meteor showers in the night sky! Identify showers at your current location, catch a meteor streaking past you in space as you orbit with a satellite, or recreate famous historic meteor showers like the great Leonid storm of 1833. Meteor shower details are located under "Earth" in the Luminos browser.
We've also added new ways to share and control the Luminos app. Use the new Share button to create a link which saves your current environment, then share it with friends or Airdrop it to those near you. You can even craft URLs to fully control Luminos, making your own sequences to educate and entertain others.
Pluto has a new look based on recent New Horizons mission images.
We've also made our settings more friendly, updated our internal databases, and fixed many bugs. Drop us a comment or a review if you enjoy our work. Clear skies!
This is a very fun and informative app. Most features can be learned simply by tapping the buttons on the screen. If that is not enough, go to the browser and select user's guide and there are professional informative videos on how to operate the app. The Video on the basics is slightly more then 5 min. So it won't waste your time. Selecting a planet, the app will fly through the solar system and orbit the selected planet. Features on it can be selected for more information. Or select a satellite and go "ride" it, So you can see the earth from that perspective.
Fun to use and a serious astronomy tool also. My favorite astronomy app.
Best app I've used. A little expensive but well worth the money. Here in Center Pennsylvania there's a meteor shower going on and it's right on point. Love the App. Get it don't second guess yourself.
My favorite App!
Out of all the apps I have tried this by far the best!
When I first purchased this App think I paid like $11.00
Got to say best $11.00 bucks I ever spent! Also once I learned how to use and navigate have been able to teach my kids and there friends about the night sky. Was able to take my Daughter out last night and show her the international space station as it past over she&I where both amazed!! Thanks Luminos
