Awesome and creative app Had a chance to meet cass, the creator of this app at king jesters brewery and pizza in Austin the other day and he showed us soooo many cool things to see in the sky with this app. Its freaking amazing how much stuff is out there in space if you just stop and look using spacejunk. Already saw the space station go overhead twice and still so much more to explore. A great idea that has never been done before. R3 rocks.
