Description

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!

    I’ve enjoyed this app for 6 years. The improvements addressed the needs of this user.
  • A MUST HAVE APP FOR STARGAZERS

    I have been using this wonderfully crafted app for 5 years and it has never steered me wrong with my astrophotography hobby. Satellite passes, conjunctions of planets and comet passes have been spot on. I highly recommend this app for anyone interested in the night sky. Excellent quality app, always updated and beautifully designed. The Apple Watch companion is superb too.

    This thing is absolutely worth the money. It has way more objects then say Star Walk 2 or Solar Walk 2. However, I do wish we could orbit stars, and see milky way galaxy as a whole (maybe even nearby galaxies) like on Solar Walk. I also wish there were more 3d renderings of the satellites, and also non earth satellites, and maybe also show the landing of rovers on the planets. I know it's all TLE live satellites, but it would be cool to have the older trajectories and older satellites. Either way this app has probably more than any other app out there, though I have yet to try Sky Safari.

    This is my ‘go to’ app for astrophotography. I can’t imagine how much work has been put into developing this, but one thing is for sure, it has been built from passion and a real interest in astronomy and from doing something that is way cooler than anything else. Thank you!

    This is just crazy! The amount of hard work and detail that is put into this app is incredible! I am a space nerd myself, and when I read about mercury, I was simply blown away by the amount of information there was! I learned that on November 11th, (8 days from my birthday) that I might be able to see a transit, where mercury passes by the sun. I am very exited about this app and can't wait to learn (A LOT) more. I am going to end this with a quote: "So much space, so little time..."
  • Great Astronomy app
