Best star gazing ap
This ap is worth the small amt. It's always updated and will define the heavens whenever you are outside and gazing upward and outward. Great accuracy and amazing ability to map exactly what you are seeing. I've been using it for two years now after night runs to cool down and I learn new stars after each run
My 6-year-old daughter just learned about the moon and planets at school. Now, we use this app to identify planets and stars. Amazing feeling, as a mom, to see your child get so excited while learning!
I've wanted this since i was a kid. How awesome to see all the night sky and know all the names and places i've usually had to guess at. Highly educational, and motivational.
