Editors’ Notes

This planetarium in your pocket makes it easy to discover the wonders of space wherever you go. Day or night, just aim your device skyward to see a live 3D map of the heavens, complete with beautifully illustrated constellations, stars, planets, and satellites. A special night mode helps you read the map in the dark, while integrated weather reports show the best times for stargazing. You can even have notifications alert you to future astronomical events.

Pure Universal Magic

Joshua ben David son of Light

I love this app especially the X-ray and other Light options, for just because our optical human eyes see things a certain way doesn’t make that all there is. Even other animals from our very same Mother Earth see Ultraviolet light and other aspects of the light spectrum. To paraphrase Nikola Tesla(and other great genius cosmonauts): The Universe is not dark empty space but rather Energy and Light as the Aether is everywhere. Just because we can’t see these aspects of the spectrum through your average telescope doesn’t make them unreal. So Thank You especially for putting the X-ray and other light options in your app, it’s very Awesome to be able to see these things with the physical eyes as well. Some of us are still only using our two outer eyes and forget to use all three. As the Mind’s Eye, the Third Eye- the pineal gland, is very real; fully functional in those who seek it, and can help us to experience the true nature of the Universes inside and outside. Especially when we keep the protection of the Universal Creator in our minds and hearts before traveling. Universal Love to Everything and Everyone- as from my(and many others) perspectives We Are All One. For the Entire Universe(in and outside) is always here with All of Us.

Thank you for your review! Happy stargazing!

If you don’t have this app you’re missing out.

I would have never known the International Space Station orbits the Earth about 15 times per day. I now watch it orbit twice just about every night. On non-cloudy nights anyway. It’s amazing. It’s like a star shooting across the night sky and Night Sky alerts us a couple minutes in advance then shows us exactly where to look. My 6 yr. old daughter has changed from wanting to be a veterinarian to wanting to be a space station driver. ;-)
Not sure if the main intention of this app is educational or to get kids dreaming of space travel but it does both very well. Only had it for a few days now so it will be fun to see what else it does. I imagine we have only scratched the surface. Definitely spend the $10 on the year membership. Jumping from planet to planet and seeing the sky and stars from their perspective is worth $100. We saw a planetarium show this week at the Tulsa Air and Space Museum. This app is like your own show. There is a ton of activity going on in the night sky. It’s so much more interesting and fun to see when you know what you’re looking at.
