Learn the current phase of the Moon with one of the most detailed and scientifically accurate visualizations ever made of the Moon. This app shows you the current phase of the Moon, using a simulation of the lunar surface created by NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance mission during its observations of the Moon. * Beautiful images of the Moon were made by NASA from data collected by spacecraft. * See the current date, phase name, illumination percentage, distance to the Earth and Moon age. * Swipe left and right to move forward or backwards in time to see what the Moon will look like in the future or past. * Need to find the next full Moon? You can click a button to take you to the next full Moon. * You can also access a calendar that shows you the phase of the Moon for any date in the future. * Press play and watch the Moon rotate through its phases, all on its own. * Pinch to zoom the Moon in and out to reveal more details on the lunar surface, and then pan around with two fingers * See the zodiac signs so you can find the Moon quickly in the night sky * Turn on a full lunar atlas, with dozens of labeled locations, including landing sites, craters and lunar maria.

  • Great App

    By Bonbon8506
    I love this app. My one complaint is that it never opens to the current state. It opens to when I looked at it last and I have to manually update. I had the android version before this version and that app did open in real time. I can't find any settings to change this. Otherwise, I love the information it provides.

    I like this app. It works well. The moonlight is streaming in and I wonder, what's the moon doing? I can find out in seconds. Nice! Update- two years on. Still using and enjoying it. Working well.

    This app has been with me through 4 different phones. I love it. When everyone is acting all crazy-like, one click will tell me if it's approaching a full moon. Many times it is. Plus it's just a super cool. Makes you feel like you know stuff about the moon and whatnot.
  • Great app!

    It's clear simple easy to use. It's exactly what I was looking for.
  • A- (four and a half stars)

    Love this app. Versatile for looking up future as well as past dates. Same complaint; how come it doesn't open to the current date. Always have to tool around to get it to present date, but once there, it is a beautiful app.
  • very good!

  • What in the World... Er, Moon?

    Great App, but shouldn't it open to the phase the the moon is in right now? It's the primary reason I go to the app; to find out what is happening right now! It's more intuitive to open to that screen first (to me anyway)... Thanks for listening!
