Luminos brings the excitement of the universe to you with beautifully rendered views of the night sky. Instantly zoom in to high-definition views of the planets and moons with a few taps on the screen. Hold Luminos up against the sky and it will effortlessly guide you to find any star or planet. Then, let Luminos entertain you with stories on the history, knowledge and mythology of your favorite planets, moons and stars.

When you're ready to go even further, Luminos will be ready with you. Detailed data on every object is easily available within Luminos, even without an Internet connection. If you're fortunate enough to have a computer-controllable telescope then Luminos can command it for you to find objects quickly and easily. 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.

Whether you want to admire ancient constellations, watch satellites soaring overhead, find out what that brilliant dot is on the horizon, watch eclipses, 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, 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. Get out there and start exploring!

What's new

Along with many bug fixes, we've added a few new features for this release. Thanks for your support!

* Luminos now uses the Revised Edition of the New General Catalog and Index Catalog, the most accurate and complete version of the NGC/IC.

* A catalog of popular asterisms has been added to the "Stars and Constellations" section, with descriptions and figures for the sky view.

* Terrain now uses an atmospheric lighting model for an even more realistic appearance.
