Description: Have you ever had so bad day that you just wanted to go away from the humanity and relax? Now you can go to the Moon. Or to the Mars. That isn’t far enough? No problem, go to another star system. Check yourself why TRAPPIST-1 planets don’t have any forms of life.

Another feature of the Virtual Telescope is to give you the actual star sky and solar system state which depend on your current geolocation and time. You can change zoom or lens size and get information about a selected object or just watch events like solar and lunar eclipses.

Review: Virtual telescope is in fact a lot more than its title suggests. Not only does the app display a semi-accurate starscape for you to look at in any location all over planet Earth, but you can also visit other planets and see the types of mountain ranges and skylines you would expect. But I feel I need to warn you that this experience is more for people just getting into stargazing rather than seasons professionals. It looks good most the time and is kind of interesting, but there wasn’t enough educational material here for my liking, but I am not into stargazing. I feel the price is about right for the amount of content you get, but it won’t be for everyone.
