Lumos: Sun and Moon Tracker App

Intuitive yet powerful, Lumos accurately predicts the position of the sun and moon at any time, on any day, in any place. Whether you’re planning a photo shoot, a wedding, or a solar panel installation, tracking the sun and moon has never been easier! Lumos is divided into six main modules: • The augmented reality view harnesses the power of AR to visually project past, present, or future sun and moon positions (and moon phases!) onto your surroundings, letting you perfectly visualize your plans. • The map view overlays the sun and moon positions for a given time and location onto a map of that location, letting you make plans from afar. • The Street View mode works like the AR view, but it takes advantage of Google Street View to allow you to envision sun and moon positions for remote locations (requires Lumos Pro). • The calendar view displays a simple list of rise/set times and moon phases throughout the year, letting you see the big picture at a glance. Tap a row to see the detailed ephemeris for that day. • The notifications module lets you sign up to receive notifications for significant solar and lunar events, including: astronomical, nautical, and civil dawn/dusk, blue hour, golden hour, sunrise/set, solar noon, moon rise/set, lunar transit, and lunar perigee/apogee (requires Lumos Pro). • The shadow length view calculates the exact length of the shadow an object will cast on a given time and day, letting you see the result both visually and numerically. You can also calculate the height of an object if you know the length of its shadow. With an affordable one-time purchase of Lumos Pro, you can also: • Search for a location by name or manually enter coordinates • Save locations for later reference or offline use* • Take notes on a saved location and have them readily available the next time you view it *The map view and Street View do not currently support offline use NOTE: The sun and moon positions calculated by Lumos are accurate to within a small fraction of a degree. However, as with any augmented-reality app, the accuracy of the projection is dependent on the underlying hardware. If you are seeing inaccurate positions, please calibrate your device's compass and ensure that you are not near any sources of electromagnetic interference (e.g. microwaves, computers, car engines, high voltage lines). Phone cases containing batteries are known to cause compass interference. You can also use the visual calibration tool to align the projection with sun’s current position. Please feel free to contact us if you continue to have issues. _____________ Terms of Use: Privacy Policy:

  • Everything I ever wanted for tracking the sun and moon 5/5

    By Good fellow 45
  • Paid for the pro version, now it’s inaccurate. 1/5

    By JerBear25
    The height of the sun in AR mode is not aligned with the app’s projection of the sun. It is impossible to calibrate it vertically, whereas you can horizontally to align with the time. This renders the horizon not true to my view, making the app useless. Pretty disappointed.
  • Very inaccurate and waste of money. 1/5

    By MShan321
    This app gave me 3 opposite directions of where the sun will rise in a period of 4 hours. Last time I used it I was looking toward the sun and it said it was the opposite direction. Trash app.

    By Steve Ols
    Fantastic tool for the outdoor photographer.
  • Great AR view of Sun, useful and accurate 5/5

    By BrettDreamer
    This is a great app, it works perfectly after a little calibration, for me. The display of the sun arc is perfect for understanding solar energy availability for your roof and side of your house throughout the year! Prior to finding this app, I was trying to check the sun position for every season from a window on the side of the house and by watching the roof and taking pictures. I would like to see a few additions for the pro version, 1.) let the notifications also be setup based on current weather conditions - I don’t need to know it’s perfect sun for photography if it’s an overcast day. 2.) on the shade calculator, provide a way to setup trees around your house and enter their height, then show on the street view how that appears at any season with the sun at its arc during that time, for example I have a lot of trees blocking the back 1/2 of my roof and part of the sides of my house, but it will be real hard to calculate how much sun energy I can get at those locations if the trees are shading those areas and it’s hard to calculate or see that in Lumos Pro now, I would also need to enter some type of setup on the height of the house I think as well as the shade calculation must include the higher location of the roof and sides of the house based on the height of the house too. 3.) provide a way to display more of the arc of the suns path where it actually is, and then a lower point indicating the time at that position as I have to keep raising and lowering my phone to see the times on the arc as they are above where I can see them in AR. 4.) calculate actual sun energy reference points that will be available at 4 seasonal points of the year and based on a square footage of solar panels, so in: equinox, and 2 solstice points, and maybe one total for the whole year (average expected solar energy that can be generated with xx number of panels, which can be saved in setup).

  • Is pro upgrade a monthly cost, annual, Life??? 1/5

    By Mike-mn
    The app offers an upgrade but I can’t find anything about what the cost covers. Will it be a monthly fee? Or a 1 time payment?
  • From first minute... 1/5

    By Livin' the dreamWV
    From the first minute I was on the app a pop up came up everytime I touched the screen asking to buy the pro version. Disappointed bc I most likely would have if I could have tested it after the tutorial.
  • Amazing Utility 5/5

    By ode444
    Outstanding! I love the street view!
  • Address Text Not Visable 4/5

    By premier dad
    As with any AP they just cannot leave it alone. The new installation does not allow one to see what address is being typed in the search menu. Very aggravating when the search comes up empty because one may have typed a letter wrong. If it isn’t broke, leave it alone please!!!

  • Terrific Photography Assistant 5/5

    By AustinCoffeeTime
    The first BIG PLUS for me is the super fast customer support. I had two questions and sent LUMOS the Customer Support form. Within two hours, the founder of the App responded with the answers I needed. I used LUMOS yesterday to find the “golden hour” and sunlight location for a shoot on Austin’s Sixth Street. I also was able to install LUMOS on both my iPad and iPhone SE for one price. Already paid for itself.
  • Excellent 5/5

    By craig603
    As a Solar Designer this is Great tool.
  • Totally wrong rise/set times 1/5

    By MTLHE4D
    Trying to get the moon rise/ set times for the April “pink” super moon and Lumos says 06:44/19:39 when the actual times are 19:19/06:47 (sets on Apr 8 2020 in my time zone).

  • Easy and effective tool 5/5

    By felipegeek
    A simple and very useful app for knowing the trajectory of sun and moon in the sky. It’s especially handy when you find yourself unplanned at a good photographic vantage point and want to know where and when the sun or moon fits into the scene.
  • Couldn’t use it at all due to the Go Pro window popping up every time I touched the screen 1/5

    By CPugh1970
    Never got past jumping through hoops to get it started, then EVERY time I tried to move or search, Go Pro/Buy Now came on the screen which meant I couldn’t use the app! Deleted after just under 10 minutes.
  • Amazing app 5/5

    By Gustavo Canelon
    Easy to use, it provides a ton of information in its free version. I will buy the pro edition mostly as a thanks. I am building a pérgola at home and want to project the shade it will give me using different configurations. This app saved me a lot of time and work. Thanks.
  • Worth the money for pro 5/5

    By Rafy709
    Great app for any photographer that uses sunlight. (A good majority) So helpful when imagining scenes and camera positions in a remote location for a future date. My only complaint is that the app doesn’t think I have compass calibration on, so augmented reality does not work. I checked my settings, and I do have compass calibration on. Devs, I am running on iPhone 6 at iOS 12.2. Please see if there is another function call for my hardware/iOS version that will work. Thanks. EDIT: ignore my issue. I opened it again after several uses and the AR started working and showing sun path. Updated to 5 stars
