    Awesome Program
  • Moon phases

    By Dsthomas5445
    Add a feature that tells what type of moon it’s going to be at night.
  • No notifications anymore

    By JerryG63
    As much as I love this app, I don’t receive sound notifications anymore. I have every notification from app to mobile turned on, yet no notifications. I love watching the Space Station go overhead but I continually miss it due to no sound notifications ahead of time. If this worked, I’d give 5 stars. I’m on an iPhone XS Max.
  • Fun.
