See the current phases of the Moon with a beautiful 3-D simulation made by NASA satellites. You can even see the shadows change on the Moon as the phases change.
â˜¾ "Fantastic application for tracking everything you ever wanted to know about the moon. Beautifully designed as well. " - Art
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.
â˜¾ "Works great on my Samsung Galaxy Note running Android 4.0.4. The moon phase scrolling is very smooth. A great app that gives you "full control" of the state of the Moon!" - Chromeman
The image accurately represents not only the current phase of the Moon, but also the distance to the Moon - updating in real-time. Watch the distance tick higher or lower as the Moon moves towards or further from us.
You can smoothly drag the Moon phase back and forth with your finger, or even "spin it" to quickly advance forwards or backwards. It's kind of hypnotic, and will keep a child entertained for quite a while.
â˜½ Beautiful images of the Moon were made by NASA from data collected by spacecraft. Watch how the shadows on the craters change over the course of a month, and see the Moon's libration (wobble) as it completes an orbit around the Earth.
â˜½ Installation includes a Live Wallpaper and a Widget so you don't need to run the app to always know what phase it is.
â˜½ See the current date, distance, phase name, zodiac location and illumination percentage: updated in real time. GPS detection of your hemisphere and location to make sure the Moon looks right for you.
â˜½ Swipe left and right to move forward or backwards in time to see what the Moon will look like in the future or past. It slides back and forth with "buttery" smoothness. Spin it faster or slower. You can even set it to spin through its phases on its own.
â˜½ Pinch to zoom the Moon in and out to reveal more details on the lunar surface, and then pan around with two fingers â˜½ Need to find the next full Moon? You can click a button to take you to the next full Moon or new Moon.
â˜½ You can also access a calendar that shows you the phase of the Moon for any date in the past or future. You can also see a monthly calendar of the Moon's phases.
â˜½ Share your phase of the Moon images on all the popular social networks
â˜½ Supports rotation to Landscape mode or Portrait mode
â˜½ Press "Start Rotating" and watch the Moon rotate through its phases, all on its own.
â˜½ Pinch to zoom the Moon in and out to reveal more details on the lunar surface, and then pan around with two fingers
â˜½ Turn on a full lunar atlas, with dozens of labeled locations, including landing sites, craters and lunar maria.
â˜½ See the zodiac signs so you can find the Moon quickly in the night sky
