Nightlight is a new desktop application whose aim is to bring a modern interface to FITS files with the polish and design people expect from applications they use every day. By making it a native Macintosh application, one is able to leverage cutting edge frameworks that enable GPU acceleration, multithreading, interactive touch interfaces, real-time image processing, desktop metadata indexing, and more. FITS (flexible image transport system) is the standard file format used by professional astronomers. Nightlight is designed to answer the question, “What is in this FITS file?” without requiring a line of code.
