Amazing app. It has all I was looking for and more than that. Moon calendar, planet positions, meteor showers among others. Very useful and versatile app. 5000 stars 🌌 Maybe the west-east directions could be flipped, that would match the sky as we observe it from underneath. In the latest update they actually included an option to flip W-E directions. Awesome!

An amazing app for free and with no ads. This is the type of app that I would want to donate to the developer, but I can't find an option for that either! Skymap and periscope are fantastic features helping identify night sky object and track moon positions, built in calendar for astronomical events, and a news reel. Contains everything I need
