Customers had the following comments: "So easy to use: point at sky & it tells you all. We were at Kilauea volcano park last night on way to crater, saw a bright reddish object. Thought it was Mars but wasn't sure. Downloaded app in the wilderness, pointed & confirmed yep that's Mars. And there was Saturn the next brightest object, and Jupiter near the horizon by the half moon." "This app is amazingly and visually spacious to where you can feel which way you're leaning on the earth's gravity against the pull from the moon. Makes everything around you come to life. Seeing the stars, planets, and constellations mixed fluently in between each other painted a beautiful picture that turned into a 3D visual landscape as I gazed. Crazy app. Worth the download."
