Description

Welcome to the world of astronomy: planets, double stars, galaxies, nebulae. These are just some of the amazing wonders that await you when you explore the night sky. But a dark sky with seemingly countless stars can appear overwhelming. Where do you begin?

Start with Discover Astronomy. For decades, the insightful editors of Astronomy magazine have been guiding observers, across the constellations, through the solar system, and into the deep sky so they can get the most from our time under the stars. And now, with this app, Northern Hemisphere observers can take expert guidance with them wherever they go.
Discover Astronomy eases you into stargazing by having you get to know the night sky with just your unaided eyes and binoculars through interactive articles, videos, galleries, and star charts. What are the signpost stars and star patterns of each season? What should you observe first? How can you understand where to look when you hear about a sky event in the news? The answers are all here.

After you feel comfortable with the major constellation guideposts of each season, grab your binoculars and Discover Astronomy to explore the Moon and the brightest star clusters, nebulae, and galaxies. You’ll be amazed by what simple optics can reveal. Soon you’ll be craving the views only a telescope can provide, which this app helps you with as well. Let Astronomy’s editors guide you through the buying process and get you started observing the planets, the Sun, and hundreds of stunning deep-sky objects. In no time, you’ll be exploring the sky like a pro and sharing your knowledge with others.

Payment for this app will be charged to your iTunes account at confirmation of purchase.

Customer Reviews

Huge memory required for nice beginner's app

The completely loaded app took over 700 mb on my Aire, not 20mb. It is a good, low priced introduction to astronomy if you have the space on your device.
