This feature is set to be a huge hit with avid astronomers, and those looking to enhance their night sky explorations.
• Stargazing Weather: Detailing cloud cover, temperature, wind speeds and visibility, categorised into simple icons informing you of whether stargazing conditions are good, fair or poor for the night ahead.
• Push notifications: An optional feature in which a notification is sent directly to the user’s device informing them of the stargazing conditions for the night ahead. Ensuring users can stargaze with ease and optimise their experience!
• Education: Select a constellation, planet, star or satellite and Night Sky 2 will provide you a wealth of information on all of the celestial bodies it identifies.

We'd like to express our thanks to all of our users worldwide for making Night Sky one of the most popular apps in the world.
Used to like it
Update: when NS2 came out I liked it. But now i realize that the calibration is way off(I see from other reviews that I am right). also the constant requests to upgrade to Pro! When I look at what is offered in Pro I see not much. One thing is bug fixes. So, now you are going to charge for bug fixes!!!!!! I think I am going to delete this app and go back to NS1. Seriously developers read the reviews before you lose everyone!!
I had already purchased the Information pack for Night Sky 1 so was glad to see that night sky 2 brought it in. The biggest differences between 1 and 2 is the cloud and sky information which is handy. If you do not have Night Sky 1 this is a great app if you like to know what is above in the night sky.
One issue is that the constellation names are very faint and hard to see. They were bright enough to see in NS1 so can you fix this in this version? It is really annoying not to be able to see the names of the constellations.
One request is that you show comets.
Pestered with Advertisements to Upgrade
The calibration is really off, up to ninety degrees! Says I'm looking west when I'm looking north. Reset and then says west when looking south. Plus, it constantly interrupts with a notification to upgrade to Night Sky Pro (which has terrible reviews, too). Really, really irritated after just a half hour of using this app. What a waste because I used Night Sky (previous version) and it was great!
Poor calibration and very spammy
Gee, spam much? You can't leave the app for 2 seconds without it asking you to upgrade. And the compass calibration is awful. Why would i pay for something else that probably won't work. I hate being spammed so there's no way i'll be buying another one of this developer's apps if when he makes a new version i'm going to be pestered into buying that too.
