Moon Globe

By Midnight Martian

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Hold the Moon in your hands. Moon Globe turns your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad into a precision instrument for viewing Earth's Moon. Satellite imagery and topographic laser altimeter data are combined to render the Moon with realistic lighting in realtime 3D.

Use the multitouch screen to manipulate the view. Spin above the surface, or switch to Telescope mode to see the Moon as it appears from your location on Earth. Adjust the display time and watch the sunlight shift over the lunar landscape. A "tag cloud" floats just above the surface, labeling terrain features and spacecraft; touch any label to find out more about that feature. Moon Globe also shows you where the Moon and Sun are in the sky with its dynamic sky compass.

This sophisticated astronomy simulation is FREE so that you can learn about Earth's Moon and wow your friends with what your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad can do. For Moon Globe fans, Moon Globe HD is also available, with twice the map resolution and somewhat better rendering.

What's New in Version 2.2.4

Improved spin rate, especially for iPhone 5.

Customer Reviews

Moon Child.

The best moon app I have ran across thus far. It's very detailed and very informational, I'm a cancer, born on July 13 and the Moon is my so called planetarium influence. Anyway this app is all you need to know about the moon landscapes and it's information. PS. I don't believe in Astrology Horoscopes. I give this app a 5 star rating, anybody that seeking more information about this app ought to be or should become a Astrologist professionally. I"m sick & tired of reading negative reviews about apps without people realizing that it could be their own faults or their own cell phones having a technical problem. If only they contacted their Carrier and perhaps realize their cell phones are out dated or perhaps their iOS is. Then we may not see so many neg reviews, not to say that there are a lot of crummy apps out there, But this app is not one of them!

Great for novice telescope user

5 stars because it's free, 4 if I had to buy. Some minor stuff could improve. I just got my first scope and as the moon is easiest to see, i turned to it. This app is so helpful expanding my knowledge of what I'm seeing and encouraging me to learn more. Great on iPad, phone just too small. Thanks to developers. I searched various apps and this is most useful.

Great App

Really enjoy this App. Gives you a good overview of the Moon's surface features, background information on them, updated information from NASA and other Space Agencies and makes all of this easily accessible and understandable! Excellent!
