Whether you want to admire ancient constellations, watch satellites soaring overhead, find out what that brilliant dot is on the horizon, or recreate eclipses, Luminos has what you need. Browse the largest deep space image catalog of any mobile app, anywhere, or track 3D meteor showers now or from the past. Travel through time, identify craters on the moon, fly through space, watch the solar system in motion from high above, or see the multitudes of asteroids orbiting perilously close to our planet. Hold Luminos up against the sky and it will effortlessly guide you to find any star or planet. You can even get live sky charts and satellite alerts on your Apple Watch!

If you're fortunate enough to have a computer-controllable telescope, then Luminos can command it for you to find objects quickly and easily. Detailed data on every object is easily available within Luminos, even without an Internet connection. Powerful planning tools help you make the most of your evenings by showing you exactly what will be visible tonight or any night in the future. Get out there and start exploring!

    I really love this app there is so much information I haven’t even scratched the surface.
  • Really bad interface

    This app gets 2 stars because it is, when you get it to work, really cool. If I were to rate this app based on the user interface I would give it less than 1 star. Simply put, the user interface is garbage. Too hard to use and an accidental tap will focus on a star or some other object and you have spend a few minutes clearing the mistake. One of the coolest features is the motion control. Simply point your device at the sky to figure out what star you are looking for. The problem is activating the motion control. I have been poking around for about an hour, still can't remember how to find it. Maybe it's no longer part of the app? Wish I could get a refund.
  • Very informative

    I just recently bought the app and so far so good. It has a great deal of information about hundreds of stars and other celestial bodies. There are a few things that I think could be improved on. The major one is using the calculator to find out how well you can see something. I.E how much mag you would need to see the rings of Saturn. Another thing is the lack of phone tracking with the app.Overall though I am very impressed and happy with the app.
  • By far the best

    I have studied the stars since 1963. I have used many astronomical software packages since then on Windows, Mac, and IOS platforms. This is by far the best and most complete. Its celestial presentations are stunning. The number of stars in its data base far exceed anyone’s need. And it is the easiest to take out in the field and use. Used it successfully in the northern and southern U.S., Sicily,, Sri Lanka, Tibet, Morocco, Galapagos, South Africa, and Cape Horn. I wish there was a 6th star in the rating scale. It deserves it.

    I heard about this app from the early Liftoff Podcast episodes. The app is intuitive, well rounded, and thorough.
