I have to say this app is just delightful. I can’t say enough good about it. All my life I have looked at the heavens. Last night I looked at Mars and knew it was Mars. I wished there was a 10 Star review because it is EXCELLENT !

Our heavens so full and we have only understood of what we know thru a lens and not actually exploration! It’s truly beautiful Gods creation! On the other hand it’s deplorable how man can clutter and polite even the heavens! Can’t wait for God to take it back!!
