Is it a star or the planet Mars? Knowing what's up in your night sky is now effortless with Sky Guide. Hold your iPhone or iPad up and Sky Guide automatically aligns itself to the stars above you—no setup required!
Have you ever wished you could recognise the constellations but didn't want to study those paper star charts? Sky Guide's interactive experience makes learning your way around the sky intuitive and fun.
Whether you're in search of the constellation Virgo, the Andromeda Galaxy or the next big meteor shower, Sky Guide is jam-packed with information and rich graphics that will satisfy the most curious minds.
Voyage to the past or future with cinematic time controls. Know where the Moon will be later in the evening so you can capture that perfect photo. See what the sky looked like the moment you were born or be an eyewitness to history's greatest comets.
It's a star! It's a plane! No, it's a satellite! Sky Guide features hundreds of bright satellites for you to identify and track. You can also receive notifications whenever the International Space Station flies over your location.
Use Sky Guide anywhere—on your evening dog walk, camping trips or in the classroom. Sky Guide works with or without Wi-Fi, cellular service or GPS, so everything is at your fingertips no matter where you go.

This app is totally worth buying! It’s so pretty to look at plus it has everything you’ve ever wondered about when it comes to star💫 gazing or finding out where our space stations are, without this app i probably wouldn’t have known Mars was so close to earth 🌏 the 1st time in 15yrs!! Being able to share the beauty of the universe and all that is out there amazing thank you ☺️ 🌟
This is amazing
I am amazed at the time and effort put into this app.
It was pretty cool once I saw this app and bought it straight away. I love all the information and the detail. I also really really like how the smallest stars that you see you have to zoom in and all of them are named.
