DISCOVER NEW DEPTHS
Star Walk 2 is the first astronomy guide to introduce plausible three-dimensional models of planetary nebulae. Star groupings of the 88 officially recognized constellations are also presented in volume. You can see them as separate entities, turn them around and take a look from the other side. Complemented by articles on connected myths and history, this is the most comprehensive collection of information on constellations.*
REAL-TIME MOTION TRACKING
As you hold your phone up and point it towards the sky, Star Walk 2 follows your motions using the built-in gyroscope to match the map on your screen to the stars seen from your location. Easily find any star, constellation, or satellite in the sky by tapping Search. Star Walk will indicate the direction to look in.
NEW POINT OF VIEW
Unlike on a plain photograph, every star in Star Walk 2 has coordinates. That means you can look at objects, for instance, a constellation from any vantage point in space, not to mention the ultimate accuracy of your map for your exact location.
NOW AND LATER
Star Walk 2 gives you accurate daily data on current moon phase, time of sunset and sunrise, and elevation of planets. With just one slide you can see how the sky will look later tonight or throughout the year.
Special night-time soft red mode will help you preserve night vision when stargazing with a telescope. You can see the sky in X-Ray (and 5 more filters) to study the invisible structure of the universe. Live tracking for over 8,000 satellites will help you catch iridium flares, and detailed articles will satisfy the most curious inquirer.
What's New in Version 2.1.5
Quick fix for Watch users:
- Fixed the bug with crashes on Apple Watch
- The original WatchOS is not supported any more
Fantastic learning tool and JUST great fun to
I have always wanted to know what stars I am looking at. And with this app it is so easy. And in real time too. Have had hours of fun just sitting in garden and looking at the night sky. Great for kids to learn where the stars are and there names. Wish I had this when I was younger. Well worth the tiny cost, I would recommend this to everyone. Love it 😄
Nice app...but latest update keeps crashing on Watch
This seems to be a good and informative app with nice graphics.
Update...now that the watch app doesn't crash there are other bugs that show discrepancies on Stargazing conditions between the phone Today Widget, Watch Glance and Watch App...again doesn't look like the app was tested thoroughly before being submitted!
Yes and No
This is a good app on its own. For me, it does not add to the original Star Walk. Much of the info' is similar and you pay extra for stuff which is included on the original. If this is your first astronomy app SW2 is fine and worth having.
