I’ve had the pleasure to be in touch with the creators behind Cosmic Watch app which can be found either at iOS App Store or at Google Play for Android devices.

The new version has a plethora of new features to access a range of beautiful settings in regards to constellations, planetary position, the solar system position in correlation to our galaxy, switch between locations on earth and keep up with time zones, day/night time settings, while you can still browse back and forth in time to find out what the night sky looked or will look like ahead of time.

I must say I’m impressed by the beautiful design and easy way to access all these features and how quickly the app responds to each setting. I really recommend this app for kids and adults alike if you’d like to explore and learn real-time how the earth’s orbit around the solar system works and how constellations move around over time.

Cosmic Watch can also be visited on Facebook if you’d like to ask questions to the creators behind this software.

The new version 2.0 has also a built-in point-and-view feature that helps you learn constellations, star names, planets, etc and explore the night sky at real time! That’s a super neat feature that is very helpful for everyone who wants to learn more on how to find things in the night sky. A perfect tool for families and educators
