    I love being notified of when the international space station is about to pass over-head in the night sky. It is the thing my childhood dreams were made of back in the 1970’s. On our evening walks, it is cool to get notified to look up and see an iridium satellite flare. I appreciate the red night screen that protects our night vision when using this app out in the field with our telescopes. The back ground music is beautiful. I appreciate everything about this app. I still have much to discover.

    I have all of the upgrades and this is one of my favorite apps to use. EVERYONE loves the app when I show them things. If I use my iPad pro... I lose it for a few hours.
