- NEW - AR OBJECT EXPLORATION - Pull Planets, Stars and Constellations out of the sky and look at them in AR! In Night Sky 6 we’ve enabled the ability to pull celestial objects out of the sky! The Object Exploration screen then creates a 3D object centre for you to explore in more detail.

Editors' Notes

This planetarium in your pocket makes it easy to discover the wonders of space wherever you go. Day or night, just aim your device skyward to see a live 3D map of the heavens, complete with beautifully illustrated constellations, stars, planets and satellites. A special night mode helps you read the map in the dark, while integrated weather reports show the best times for stargazing. You can even have notifications alert you to future astronomical events.

It’s awesome

I remember having a stargazing app before but it wasn’t as good as this one. It’s good to look at the sky without having to go outside with all the mosquitos and even if it’s cloudy you don’t need to bother about mourning because there’s no stars out because you have this app. It’s great to know what constellations you are looking at or even if there is that one orange dot off in the distance you may realise that this isn’t just a orange dot but it’s Mars or a part of the Milky Way. It’s great to know what beauties of the world are above or below us. I also love the news because then I can look them up myself if I want more info because they are always interesting and fun to read. Another good thing about this app is the fact that if you click on a star, satellite, planet or moon it will will give you great info also with a better look at the object with the 3D imagery. As you can see this is a great app and I hope that you download it because it is out of this world. ;)

Thank you for your review. Happy stargazing!

Great Pershia ,

Absolutely fantabulous

This is by far THE BEST educational app I’ve ever had,


- it has amazing premium pack.
- it does NOT force you to go premium by playing ad videos every time you touch the screen.
- 1 month free trail premium
- fully adjustable/customisable according to personal preferences.
- real and semi animated sky options to choose.
- even the full free version is fantastic with all of the features mentioned above.

- the setting is a bit complicated

Ps, setting complication might be because of my English knowledge as it’s my second language

Overall I’m absolutely happy with this app, and really really hope that I could upgrade to premium but unfortunately I just can’t do it at the moment.
