    This update tidies up the display a little, behaves more consistently when the app resumes, and now allows a mouse scroll wheel to change the time.

What's Up?

What's Up? displays the current state of the Solar System visible from your location. The Sun, Moon, and planets are displayed so you can tell at a glance where in the sky you could see them.. assuming the sky is dark and cloudless of course. Ideal for planning your Astronomy trips! Rise/Set times for the current day are also displayed, and the Moon image reflects the current phase.

Features:

  • Location-aware real-time calculation of major Solar System bodies.
  • Easy-to-use time-strip: swipe and watch the planets rise and fall in the sky.

I do find this app useful before a nights viewing but why the 1 hour error? I live in PST time zone but the time is set +1 hour.

This is a basic but very nice app for telling you which celestial bodies will appear in the sky and when. The only thing it's missing is where to find them. That's no minor detail. Compared to the amazing Go Sky Watch iOS app, this is easier to use because it is so basic but, with so many lights in the night sky, ignoring the "where" question means inexperienced stargazers like myself will need an addition app or tool.
