One of several good apps. I recommend this and Google Sky Map and Sky and Telescopes "Tonight' s Sky". They all do pretty much the same thing, but have different approaches and appearance s. I say have all three at least if you're really into astronomy! It's a matter of personal preference, . This is a good one but requires some understanding of what the difference is between celestial equator, horizon and different map projections. This gives the "Big Picture ",the sky never changes only the horizon moves. Set magnitude to 3.5,

Usability issue with ads If the ad were not in the way at the bottom it would be better. One of the other side effects of the ad is that there is a bug where you can no longer click on the planets.
