Moon map app


Recommended Posts

Hello all,

Could anybody recommend a good moon map app? My main interest is DSOs but I live in a light polluted area and do quite enjoy looking at the moon. I've got a paper map   but  could do with something that shows the terminator  as well as crater names as it is that night . I used to have one but don't remember which one

Virtual Moon (link above) has an ephemeris tab that you can set the terminator to specific time and you can turn the terminator off.  Quite handy for planning and identifying features.

I use Moon Chart by Astro Visuals on my iPhone, but it obviously can't show as much detail as VM.

The red dot is Clavius, the terminator is as of about noon US Central Time.  There's a sidebar you can set to show crater info, etc.
