Luminos

Wobbleworks LLC
Luminos is the award-winning, all-in-one astronomy app that goes beyond simple stargazing by combining millions of celestial objects into a beautifully-rendered space simulation to amaze you! Our enthusiastic customers range from hobbyists to professional astronomers, and everyone in between. And now, Luminos features the largest catalog available on mobile, with more than 113 million stars!

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! Luminos makes it all easy and fun.

Instead of buying many apps to get all of these features, Luminos includes everything in one low price. There are no in-app purchases to nibble away at your wallet and there's no advertising to distract you from views of the heavens.

When you're ready to go even further, Luminos will be ready with you. 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!

What's new in version 9.6
This update adds new features, adds convenience, and fixes bugs too! The biggest new feature is new images for nearly every Messier object. We’ve also added several user-requested features and changes too: Luminos can optionally prevent your device from sleeping while you’re connected to a telescope, the white "home bar" now disappears after a short delay, equipment fields work with localized numbers, and taps are more responsive. Also, star catalogs install correctly now, and we’ve gone through your crash reports and fixed everything (thanks for sharing them!). In particular, you should notice that Luminos no longer quits sometimes while it's in the background, and that updating asteroid and comet data works correctly. Clear skies! - John
