Customer Reviews

Great meteor guide


Great for planning when to look up into the sky for watching meteors. Like that it tells you the outlook for the shower given the current moon phase. Also like that you can set a reminder directly in the app. Very handy that it works in offline mode so if you are in a remote area to view the shower you can still get info about the shower. Needs the ability to add notes within the app so that if you viewed a shower you can jot down info like: where you were and how many you saw. Then give a visual clue in the list to help you find those quickly or filter for those that have notes.

Excellent program for meteor observing


I took a chance buying this app as there were no reviews. I am very glad that I did purchase this well designed program. Very intuitive and well laid out. All the info needed to plan a future meteor shower observation session is easily shown. Moon phase icons next to the shower name and date work great. One click takes to a very detailed info about the event. You can easily go back in time too to get historical data. It is hard to believe that this is a free app. Kudos to Howard Edin for this great contribution to the world of backyard astronomy. This app has won a spot in my top 10! Thank you very much.

Wish I would have found this before...


Missed the Perseids because being a newbie, I read the peak times wrong on the web and missed it. This app is very specific. The two only improvements I can suggest so far is 1) ability to add to iPhone calendar as an event, and 2) a sort of 'rating system' on the main screen as far as how visible/active a particular event will be (maybe this can't be done because of varying viewing locations?). But definitely very cool app if you love to watch shooting stars! :)
