    Ever open an app that just makes you feel amazing? This is it. I use it for education, teaching my children and for photography. The supermassive subscription is totally worth it and expands the universe to super high resolutions. This team is doing an amazing job and you should support them. I don’t know them but I wish I did.

    Amazed how much I've learned in the past few years about our galaxy, planets and stars simply by looking up at night and using this tool a few times a week. Really all you need to know here for a novice astronomer, and a bunch more. A+ Highly recommend.
