iOS Universal Reference
Whether it's watching eclipses, looking for satellites, or flying through the solar system, Luminos has everything you need and more! Luminos is the award-winning, all-in-one astronomy app that goes beyond simple stargazing by combining huge celestial databases into a beautifully-rendered space simulation that will amaze you! Our enthusiastic customers range from hobbyists to professional astronomers, and everyone in between.
View eclipses for thousands of years into the past and future, and even re-create them for yourself in 3D! Browse our vast deep space image catalog (the largest of any mobile app, anywhere)! Track meteor showers for this weekend or from the day you were born! We even render the meteor showers in 3D -- fly up to the ISS and see what meteor showers look like from above! Travel through time, travel to craters on the moon, travel through the rings of Saturn, watch the solar system in motion from high above, and see the swarms of asteroids orbiting perilously close to our planet (yikes!)
When you want to see where something is in the sky, hold Luminos up and it will point the way! Best of all, Luminos only needs an internet connection to update data once in a while, which means you can be in the middle of nowhere and Luminos will still educate, entertain, and assist you with detailed information and images!
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 and our 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!

Welcome to Luminos version 9.2! We’ve made some big improvements in this release, and the biggest of all are new ultra-high definition textures! You can now view the Moon and Earth in amazing detail with 100 megapixel textures, and we’ve also freshened our sun texture with a higher resolution version created from SDO and STEREO imagery. Finally, we’ve made Dr. Axel Mellinger’s beautiful all-sky Milky Way panorama even more gorgeous with new image processing and a higher resolution.
This release isn’t just about looks — we’ve also tweaked features and made fixes: eclipse maps now show the boundaries for totality and provide more details about the moment of greatest eclipse, moon phase changes are listed under the Moon and shown in the Tonight view, satellite positions and rise/set times are more accurate with the WGS84 shape model for Earth, and we’ve added support for the new Astro-Physics CP4 telescope.
You’ll also find numerous fixes and tweaks, such as widgets adjusted for iOS 10 and motion tracking that activates more easily. You can find full details and videos at our website!
Fiixed in 9.2.1: The equipment editors no longer sometimes show blank fields and they now use a larger font. We also tweaked the constellation images slightly for a more consistent appearance between different screen resolutions.
