Why we love it
We really enjoyed getting to use the app, and even if you’re the least bit interested in astronomy, definitely check it out. While it’s not as wide ranging as other astronomy apps, it does a great job focusing on the celestial events you can view at your location. While we don’t get to do much stargazing in a big city, I’m looking forward to trying it in a more hospitable location soon.
