I've been using Sun Surveyor for a couple years now.
It looks mostly the same but Sun Surveyor looks more polished.
It also includes the Milky Way Center and recently added 'Photo Opportunities' that will tell you times and dates for a location for Full Moon at sunrise/sunset, milky way center visibility or total darkness.
Does anyone know of an app or a map that shows the viewing radius for the state of Florida for launches. I am also curious in seeing the launch represented on a sphere so I can better visualize launch angle and orbits . (Sun Surveyor app as an example)
Ultimately I want to visualize the launch and orbit around Earth from my perspective in Florida.
This has been a mainstay on my phone(s) for a couple years. Great app. I use it to figure out how much sun parts of my yard get before planting.
Edit: whoops, I've been using Sun Surveyor.
Canon 6D, Samyang/Ronikon 14mm f/2.8.
I use the Android app Sun Surveyor to work out when and where the Milky Way will be. Around this time of year it rises in the East around 1am and is visible to roughly 5.30am when the sun starts to rise and wash it out. Also important is to make sure the moon isn't up which washes out the stars slightly but enough to make a considerable impact (again I used the app). I went to near Princess bay and set up. With my camera and lens setup I used a 25second exposure, f/2.8 and iso 1600 shot in raw format. Then I edit in lightroom.
Thanks! My favorite apps right now are Stellarium Mobile PLUS and Sun Surveyor. Those in combination are great to plan landscape/astro shots.
This looks really great! Wish I had known about this a week ago because I ended up buying Sun Surveyor. I had a bunch of Play Store credits that I wanted to burn.
This will show you golden hours blue hours, sunrise sunset, moon phases.
It has a live view that can show you with your camera where the sun will be in the sky at a certain time of day.
There are a hundred other features it has that I never even use.
It is well worth its price.
On Android I use Sun Surveyor:
Especially I like its integration with Google Streetview when planning specific compositions with real-world objects, like radio masts and other tall structures.
Try to photograph during the golden hour, for that, use This app to know where the sun's gonna be before you leave the house
Consider uploading your photos to Google photos to access them everywhere
If you get subscribed to Adobe CC get the Lightroom app to access your photos on your phone, edit them and they sync to the computer
Also, and mostly, use the YouTube app to learn, my favorite channels are Serge Ramelli, and Tony Northrup, but there's plenty more and even more well-known, I just happen to like these
Sun Surveyor :
Dark Sky : <strong>iOS</strong> (not on Android, but you can try <strong>Arcus Weather</strong> instead).
Edit : here is Dark Sky for <strong>Android</strong>, didn't found it directly.
Sun Surveyor is pretty nice! I used to use TPE but now I prefer this.
EDIT: Acutally, Sun Surveyor has Street View integration now, so I was able to do this. Assuming the elevation is correct, then you'd be able to see this effect at 4:30 PM on Monday, April 13th, give or take a week.
Nice photo app, I use Sun Surveyor for a similar purpose
Wheater Underground does a good job (it also has an mobile app).
if you need meteorologist datas go for Wetterzentrale (for central europe... it get almost all europe)
if you are interested in ephemeris etc go for Sun Surveyor (Sun & Moon)
they are damn accurate (I don't need your thanks... just a kiss XP )
I haven't looked at the photo pills app but the sun surveyor app on the play store seems to do the same things. [link]
Or on Android, I recommend Sun Surveyor
