You can now have a virtual star chart in your pocket. Look through the eyes of your iPhone or iPad* to see a high-tech window into the whole visible universe.
All you have to do is point your AR enabled device* at the sky and Star Chart will tell you exactly what you are looking at.
Using state of the art GPS technology, an accurate 3D simulation of the visible universe, and a great deal of technical wizardry, Star Chart calculates – in real time - the current location of every star, planet and moon visible from Earth and shows you precisely where they are; even in broad daylight!
Want to know what that bright star is called? Point your device* at it – you might just find out it’s a planet!
Want to know what the night sky looks like to people on the other side of the earth? Well just point your device down!
Want to know where your star sign is in the sky? Star Chart will tell you all this and more.
Star Charts features include:
- Just point and view. When you hold your device up to the sky, Star Chart will automatically start tracking your movements to match the sky *.
- Alternatively, look around the sky using finger gestures – perfect for armchair astronomers!
- In a single app of less than 30MB, Star Chart dynamically scales its visuals and capabilities across all iOS devices to meet the high end capabilities of a retina display iPad while also running smoothly on the earliest iPhones and iPods.
- Accurately depicts all the visible stars of the northern and southern hemispheres - a total of approximately 120,000 stars!
- Fly to and explore all the planets of the solar system, their moons and the sun all rendered in beautiful 3D with state of the art visual effects.
- Using the powerful Time Shift feature, simply tap the time button and smoothly shift up to 10,000 years forward or backward in time.
- Displays all 88 constellations, with constellation imagery based on the beautiful artwork by 17th century astronomer Johannes Hevelius.
- Includes the complete Messier catalogue of 110 exotic deep sky objects.
- Tap on anything in the sky and get the facts on what you are looking at, including distance and brightness.
- Very powerful zoom function, lets you view the sky in extra detail, using intuitive finger gestures.
- Fully configurable. Star Chart displays only the sky objects that you are interested in.
- Allows you to view the sky underneath the horizon. So now you can see where the sun is, even at night!
- Manually set your location to find out what the sky looks like from anywhere in the world.
- Supports dynamic device orientation viewing. Allows you to view the night sky whilst holding your iPhone/iPad* at any angle.

What's New in Version 3.98
A few bug fixes:
- Fixed occasional crash when selecting constellations, either from search or by directly tapping on them.
- Star Chart now understands that Pluto has 5 moons, not 4.
- When running in an English variant other than US English, planet/moon order text was not displaying correctly.
우연히 동생이랑 11시 넘어 운동하러 나왔다가 어둡길래 하늘을 봤더니 달이 없더라구요~ 삭인가 하고 별 참 많다 생각하고 있었는데 큰 국자 모양의 북두칠성이 너무나 뚜렷하게 보이는 거에요! 동생 추천에 별자리표 어플 다운 받아서 하늘을 비춰보는데...................
그 감동은!!!!!!! *.*!!!!!!!
너무너무 신기하구요~ 동생이 인공위성이라 우겼던 것들이 모두 별이었고 그렇게나 밝은 줄 몰랐네요~ 참고로 어제 목성도 보고! 시리우스랑 리겔, 아크투르스, 카시오페아 별자리도 보고 너무너무 감동적인 밤이었어요~~
가족과 함께 여행 가서 늦은 시간이라 무엇을 할까 고민 하다가 공기가 맑다는 생각에 별을 보고 싶어 졌습니다. 무작정 불빛이 적은 곳까지 차를 타고 이동해서 별을 봤는데 좋았습니다. 그러다가 별의 이름을 몰라 아쉬웠는데, 그때 생각이 났습니다. 어플 받아 놨던 것을... 어플을 실행해 보고 너무 신기하고 좋아 아들도 좋아하고 아내도 신기해 했습니다. 생각지도 않게 멋진 추억을 만들고 왔습니다. 감사합니다. 새해 복 많이 받으십시오... *^____^*
무심코 위성이겠거니 했고 기껏 찾을 수 있는 별자리는 국자모양이 전부였음애도 불구하고 마냥 별보는 것을 좋아하는 1임이었어여.. 제 별자리가 실제 하늘에서 어디에 위치하는지 위성인줄 알았던 빛이 별이었음을 뒤늦게 알아버린..^^a
아이들과 함께 보기에도 정말 유용한 앱입니다..넘 좋아여...
