About this app

🌕🌖🌗🌘🌑🌒🌓🌔🌕

Spectacular, interactive 3D simulation of the moon, right down to the shadows in the craters and earthshine on the dark side. Touch screen control changes date and time as seen from your location - the phase tracks your every move. Use two fingers to spin the moon itself (see the far side!) and zoom in to see lunar features up close.

Disappointed, not telescope view friendly. Looking for something that maintains terminator as zoom in to help identify what i am looking at with scope. This turns in to a generic map as you zoom...no diferent than printed map. Otherwise ok although label layers are clunky obscure detail. Yes you can turn them off but should be semi transparent

Thanks for the suggestions. The map function is fairly new and is still evolving - but yes, right now it is like a printed map, but interactive. I'm planning to add more "telescope-friendly" features in the next release, but these things take time! If there are other such that you'd like to see, please let me know.

It's a nice little app. However, there should be an option to turn off notifications for events not visible to the user. I keep getting a repeated notification, even after I swipe it away, for an active penumbral eclipse, which is not visible in my location - which the app also tells me. An option to disable notifications for non-visible events is required.

A forthcoming update makes notifications optional for eclipses that aren't visible from your location. And I thought I'd fixed the "repeating notification" bug over the summer - but it's tough to test for real until an eclipse occurs! I'll try again to fix it for good. 🙄

Nice app but a bit buggy and missing features When you zoom in on the map it becomes too dark to make out anything. Can't seem to fix this. Control of rotation is quite tricky. Could do with a few things like spherical view locating moon, sun etc relative to earth.
