Not a planetarium program which just places objects on a sphere around the Earth, this app lets you gain a sense of how far away objects are from us. Amazing to see all the galaxies in our local group - many quite close. Messier objects vary tremendously in relative distance. This is not for sky maps, but rather provides a sense of wonder and amazement about the universe. Time flies as you explore the Milky Way and this app’s mind-blowing capabilities. A wonderful complement to your favorite “sky-mapping” app.

I’ve been imaging nebulae for just a few years and always am on the prowl for helpful tools. While SKY SAFARI has become an indispensable companion in my observatory, OUR GALAXY provides a whole new level of perspective for understanding where deep space objects reside relative to the Earth. The best feature for me is the ability to jog between it and SKY SAFARI; find an object, go to SKY SAFARI and learn more; then jump to ASTROBIN to see what other imagers have captured. A true trifecta!

Want to know where we are and how we fit in to all you can see? Then this is for you. I’m attracted to astronomy by wanting to get my bearings down on how I fit in the universe. This gives me a 3 d picture of all the observable objects in the galaxy. Just what I’ve been looking for.

The three dimensional rendering of the galaxy is amazing. This is a fantastic tool for teaching and learning where we live in the Milky Way Galaxy. Our Galaxy is a superb companion to any planetarium application.

A very detailed and entertaining app, showing the shape of our galaxy and the relationship of objects within and beyond and how it all fits together.

Our Galaxy Description
1154 chars

Our Galaxy is a unique app for both amateur astronomers and astronomy educators. It helps you visualize the 3-dimensional locations of deep sky objects in and around

our galaxy, and provides you with an understanding of their physical properties. It addition, it illustrates the structural components of the Galaxy, including the thin disk, thick disk, galactic bulge and stellar halo.

The 3-D interface allows you to see where the cluster or nebula of interest is located relative to the center and plane of the Galaxy. By panning around, or moving closer to or farther away from the object, you derive a sense of where the object really is in 3-dimensional space.

The app enhances the observing experience by helping the user arrive at an intuitive sense of physical location, size, luminosity, and distance for the chosen object. It also serves as a great tool for education and outreach with its unusual visual perspective on the location of deep sky objects and their relationship to the center and plane of our galaxy.
