The Day and Night World Map HD iPad App
UPDATE Now also shows when there's a solar eclipse and where they're visible.
The app gives iPad and iPhone users the ability to view the current position of the sun and moon in a high definition world map.
“Great for watching the moon and
the sun rising in the different continents.
Really cool app.”
