Moon Atlas lets you explore a 3D globe of the Moon, using the mouse or pinch- and finger-gestures to manipulate it. This is a rendered sphere and not a static map image. As you zoom in, more labels appear as finer detail comes into view. You can double-tap on the labels to get more information about a particular feature.
- Moon Atlas displays the phase and libration of the Moon from your chosen location, and renders these on the globe. You can switch to a 'Globe' mode that allows you to spin the Moon around to see far side features. The feature database is searchable and can move the globe to a searched feature. The phase can be switched off, and the far side is shown in a slightly darker shade of grey.
- Date, time, and location can be changed. There is also a realtime mode that will update to the current time. The Moon globe can be shown with north or south at the top or inverted to suit different telescope views.
- Over 1800 named features are included as well as 26 spacecraft that reached the surface of the Moon.
- Minor lunar feature changes.
- OS X 10.9 or later
