  • Great for everyone!

    This app is amazing! My dad and I literally go out every night and open up this app. Looking at the different planets and getting notifications when the International space station is flying by never seems to get old!

    A suggestion: Maybe disable the “rate the app” bright white super annoying rage inducing pop up when the paying user has gone out of their way to use night vision mode?
