► Star Walk 2 shows night sky map on your screen in whatever direction you are pointing the device. Orient your device toward the sky and the app activates your camera so you can see charted objects appear superimposed on live sky objects.

► As you hold your phone up and point it towards the sky, the star map 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.

► Get a deeper understanding of the constellation`s scale and place in the night star map. Enjoy observing wonderful 3D models of constellations, turn them upside down, read their stories.

► Touching a clock-face icon at the upper-right corner of the screen allows you select any date and time and lets you go forward or backward in time and watch the night sky in fast motion.

► Find and study deep sky objects such as meteor showers, planetary nebulae, star clusters, etc.

► A slider at the left-hand edge of the screen lets you see the sky at different wavelengths. See objects that are only visible at radio, microwave, infrared, ultraviolet, X-ray, or gamma-ray frequencies.

► The night-mode of this constellation star finder will make sky and stars gazing at night time more comfortable.

Editors' Notes

Powerful astronomy toolkit to screen the night sky.

Great app but......

Brady gal

When I got this app it was app of the week and was free ,so I thinking it looked quite interesting downloaded it. I really liked it and decided to buy the all in one bundle . Everything downloaded perfectly except deep sky objects which instead of saying installed or the download percent it just said extract thus the all in one bundle said extracting as well . It had been like that for about twelve hours and now I have deleted the app and am reinstalling it now but can someone please tell me what extract means or if I'll get the money spent on it back .

Love it

Marvellous, could not figure out the photo feature though. Wonderfully simple. Would love to add or switch to other sky objects in the same easy, impairedfriendly way.
