Do u know what I'm talking about? It's like the thing on the watch face for night sky that tells u upcoming events and mine is stuck on December 3 Uranus rises next

Love the fixed star notification

Love the app! I have been studying astrology and have been using the app to be notified when a fixed star has been rising. And it has been quite instructional! Thank you! Folks, it’s worth the subscription. Love the AR tour as well
