Since I was a small child I loved Look up at night at 55 I still find time for it and peace within is found.
Someone please tell me the difference between this app and SkyView lite??? Thanksss
SkyView is great for a few seconds but the drawings of the constellations are so bright that they drown out the stars. Please omit the pictures or make them much fainter or have them controllable in brightness.....Jim, an amateur astronomer
Really helps you quickly find the general area of objects on the go.
What a wonderful way to learn and research Space, Stars, Planets, Satellites, Ect. I’m learning to respect everything out there, Love It It’s a 10+ Thanks SkyView Creators 🤟
I am loving this app. My grandchildren and I have so much fun with it!!!!
Often on my back deck at night I can see satellites traveling by. I bought this app and the upgrade. It works great for all other things, except it does not display any satellites above the horizon. Countless satellites are displayed below the horizon. Recently I watched one with my naked eye, pointed my phone at it and nothing on the screen?????
Had to write how much I love this. It's great laying in bed indoors out of the rain and still have a beautiful night sky overhead. Camping with kids this is entertaining and educational. Finding the actual stars and verifying that they were right is loads of fun.
It’s great fun and educational too!
I’ve had this app for many years and used to be one of my favorites. Star images no longer update based on phone orientation.
