What's New in Version 5.3

Thank you for using Night Sky!  
Version 5.3 is a big AR update, and it brings the following enhancements:

- AR Sky Blending - Night Sky now intelligently identifies the real sky from the objects around it.  It then blends the sky map into the sky automatically, hiding the star map behind objects in the foreground.  A super intelligent AR experience! Just tap AR in Sky View to experience this. 
- AR Dark Sites - We're bringing Night Sky Community into AR.  Great nearby Dark Sites contributed by our community now appear in AR mode! 
- Apple Watch Complication - We've fixed a bug which was causing complication customizations not to update correctly.  If you customize the complication, please run the Apple Watch app for an immediate update.
- Additional bug fixes and minor enhancements. 

Thank you for using Night Sky.  If you enjoy using Night Sky a great review on the App Store is always appreciated.  If there is anything you need assistance with, please reach out to the team at Support@iCandiApps.com, who will be happy to help.
