For as long as humanity has existed, and likely longer, the heavens have fascinated and mystified, and 'Moon Locator' is a new tool that uses cutting-edge, modern technology to further satisfy that elemental interest in the objects beyond Earth's atmosphere. The app recognizes its location and gives users live displays of where the Moon is at any given moment, regardless of the time of day.

Astronomical charts can give those curious an understanding of where the Moon and planets are at any time of the day and year, but those forms of learning are inherently dry and difficult to engage with. Moon Locator uses augmented reality, displaying the precise location of the Moon as depicted through one's smartphone camera, making astronomy far more tangible.
