Live Sky is an Astronomy app for the Star Gazer who wants to quickly look up the live coordinates (Right Ascension, Declination, Altitude and Azimuth) for planets in our Solar system, the Moon, the Sun, 110 Brightest Stars in the sky and 110 Deep Sky Objects (Messier Objects).

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.

Please leave suggestions for features you would like to see in the comments.

Coming soon:
- Locate the object in the sky by pointing your phone at it
- Integration with a Weather service to give you viewing conditions

Seems to get confused


I can see Saturn in the SSW right now and this app is saying it rises in 40 minutes. It's displaying my location correctly, so there's clearly something wrong. This morning the app said Venus was 10 degrees below the horizon when I was looking at it about 30 degrees above the horizon.

Disappointing as I wanted to use the alt-az coordinates for Messier objects when I don't drag out my equatorial mount for observing.

Perhaps it's pilot error and I have something set incorrectly. We'll see.

Love this app, best star chart ever


I use this app almost every week. It show me where all the sky objects I want to observe with no effort at all.

Perfect companion for observing the sky with my telescope. I also use it to explain the night sky to my grand children.

I love it's ease of use and accuracy

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!
