A few things to make it perfect
Great app for backyard astronomers but it would be really great if you could have a red screen to save night vision. A simple solar system simulator would be a big help to know which planets are closest for the best views. And if you could show the planetary rotations and their moons so that one could know when to look for features like The Great Red Spot, it would be fantastic! Thanks!

Perfect
I'm very happy with the app as is. I can't think of anything that could make it any better.

The Best
An absolutely brilliant star gazing app and I haven't seen better. Between this and the Solar Walk app, I am absolutely blown away by the detail and thought. My 2 year old daughter's favorite 'star' is Venus, btw. A recent update asked for feature requests, so here goes: One thing I've always been curious about is the true distance of stars from us. Stars can often look like they are right next to each other in the sky but could actually be very far apart. I would love to be able to see the stars of a constellation, connected by their lines, and then rotate the view to see how they are arranged if we rotated around them and how those connect-the-dot images would be warped and twisted. We get some of this in Solar Walk when zooming out towards the galactic view (absolutely amazing, btw!), but only for a few stars and its difficult to figure out what stars are where on the sky. I think this would be a pretty spectacular addition to Star Walk (or possibly Solar Walk), even if it was 'simply' sliding a few light years side to side to see the parallax. Keep up the great work! Love it.
