The Night Sky - Top Selling Stargazing App Comes to the NOOK!

The Night Sky is a magical app that enables you to identify the stars, planets, galaxies, constellations and even satellites you can see above. Just select your current location in 3D Globe View, and The Night Sky will display the names of the stars, planets and other objects you are able to see above, just like magic! Even if your view is obscured by clouds or daylight, The Night Sky app will know which stars, planets, galaxies, constellations and satellites are hiding from your view! You have to use this app to realize just how amazing it is! The Night Sky does this by using your location data inputted in the 3D Globe View, the current time and its sky map. It then cross references your location data with its inbuilt map of the sky and overlays the stars, planets, galaxies, constellations and satellites names on your screen. It really is magical. So next time you're gazing up in to The Night Sky and wonder the name of a star, planet, galaxy, constellation or even a satellite, just get out your NOOK and let The Night Sky app amaze your gaze!

The Night Sky is a #1 selling app because it really is simply magical!

    Cool app

    Cool app. Can't wait to use it on a clear night. Would be even better on a device with gps and camera but i am still enjoying it. Love the globe mode.

    Without gps or a camera it' nothing more than a simplified star chart...

    If i get another android device with a camera an gps then this will be a bit more entertaining as this will automatically orient itself to show the patch of sky I'm viewing.

    If you already have a star chart then you might just want to save your money and not buy this for the nook.

    If the app could let you "look up" information by zooming in on a planet or star and clicking on the name I would be much more impressed.

    If I were rating B&N's customer service, I'd give it a 1. If I were to rate iCandi's (the developer) customer service, it would be a 5+. I had a problem that involved going to the developer for assistance. In a period of less than an hour iCandi's customer service and I had exchanged four E-Mails between the UK and the US. When the problem couldn't be immediately resolved, iCandi kept me updated concerning the progress and when it was resolved I received another E-Mail from them. During this time B&N sent two E-Mails saying that there was no problem that they could find.

    Oh, and before I forget, the app is first rate. If the NOOK HD+ had a built-in compass or GPS it would make things a lot easier but it's not difficult to manually find your location and proceed from there. Looking forward to many enjoyable nights gazing at the stars.

    Doesn't work on my Nook

    Buyer beware. This app will not work on all Nooks. There is no list of which models support apps. Customer service does not respond to help.

    For some reason this would not install on my Nook. I was very dissappointed. It looked to be very interesting.

    Really Cen't rate it since it won't work on my Nook

    The listing said it would work on Nook but after purchasing it I find that the basic Nook could not run it so I haven't been able to use it

    Interesting

    I find that I still cannot locate the stuff in my night sky with this program - or I'm still not sure. The labels on the constellations don't stay long enough for me to match - or get myself oriented... maybe I'm just not good enough with my tablet yet... will try it again later in the year when it's a little warmer out - and I can stay out for extended periods.
