You don't need to be an astronomer to find stars or constellations in the sky, just open SkyView® Free and let it guide you to their location and identify them. SkyView® Free is a beautiful and intuitive stargazing app that uses your camera to precisely spot and identify celestial objects in sky, day or night. Find your favorite constellations as they fade in and out while you scan across the sky, locate the Moon, discover distant galaxies, and witness satellite fly-bys.
• Simple: Point your device at the sky to identify galaxies, stars, constellations and satellites (including the ISS and Hubble) passing overhead at your location.
• Augmented Reality (AR): Use your camera to spot objects in the sky, day or night.
• Sky Paths: Follow the daily sky tracks for the Sun and Moon to see their exact locations in the sky on any date & time.
• Time Travel: Jump to the future or the past and see the sky on different dates and times.
• Social: Capture and share beautiful images with friends and family on social networks.
• Mobile: WiFi is NOT required (does not require a data signal or GPS to function). Take it camping, boating, or even flying!
What a fun way to teach yourself, your children, your students, or your friends about our wonderful universe!
What's New in Version 3.1.1
-Stability and bug fixes.
Such an amazing app. Intuitive interface, great constellations and just over all really awesome. So much better than other applications like sky map. Going to buy the full version.
As an astronomy lover, this is definitely my favorite app. It is so amazing seeing our entire solar system anywhere we go by just tapping a screen! Highly recommended app
Great app! And I would buy both paid apps, but I'm not only because I wouldn't want to be switching back and forth for certain things. If there was an app that was a mix of both, I would pay double for it.🌌
