Easily tell which the bodies that are currently above the horizon (the ones with the green icon), or learn more information about the body by clicking on it.
You can add the bodies you most frequently observe to your favorites for easier access, and enable the Today Widget that shows you a daily summary of the Night Sky.

My go-to simple and informative guide to the stars!
This is so perfect for giving me the information I want when taking a look at the night sky. Very informative yet straightforward UI gives me enough info without getting me lost. Love this app!
My definitive guide to astronomy
Didn't know what to expect but Live Sky opened up new perspectives for me. Now I enjoy taking photos of the celestial systems more so than before.
Good app, easy to use and ads free! Would recommend to a friend.
Just what I needed
This app is just what I needed to get into astronomy. It's simple, to the point, and I love how it describes the locations without the scientific jargon that I don't understand. The UI is simple and effective!
