Is it a star or Saturn? Learning what’s in your night sky is now effortless with Sky Guide. Hold your iPhone or iPad up and Sky Guide automatically aligns itself to the stars above you—no setup required!

Whether you’re looking for the constellation Virgo, the Andromeda Galaxy or Mars, Sky Guide will satisfy your curiosity. You can search for thousands of celestial sights and be guided exactly where to see them in the sky above you. Just follow the arrow.

Voyage to the past or future with cinematic time controls. Know where the Moon will be later in the evening so you can capture that perfect photo. Or, witness the approach of magnificent comets and see their tails evolve as they fly around the Sun.

Want to watch a satellite pass overhead? Sky Guide features hundreds of visible satellites for you to identify and track. You can also schedule reminders or get notifications of when the International Space Station is due to fly over — even on your Apple Watch!

Sky Guide contains immersive visuals unlike any star app you have seen before. With exclusive imagery adapted from high-resolution photographs, you’ll see millions of stars and feel as though you're spacewalking! Or, if you're feeling more earthbound, gesture down the intensity of star light to match an urban view.

Sky Guide may have few buttons but it has ample content. With richly illustrated and cross-linked articles—many by leading astronomical authors—countless enlightened moments await novice and seasoned stargazers alike.

Plus, Sky Guide functions with or without a Wi-Fi, data, or GPS signal. Take it camping or use it overseas. Everything is at your fingertips at all times, in all places.

Additional Features:

• Apple Watch support: See a calendar of upcoming astronomical events — the full moon, meteor showers, eclipses, and more. Sky Guide can send you a notification when an event is about to happen in the skies above your location. And it will even alert you when the International Space Station is due to fly over — and let you tweet one of its astronauts.

• Soundscape: Designed by award-winning composer Mat Jarvis. Stars have sounds based on their temperature and size.

• Time-lapse Effects: See star trails when you move through time quickly (supported on devices with A7 processor and higher).

• Notification Center Widget: At-a-glance essentials including rise and set times for the Sun, Moon and planets (requires iOS 8).

• Filter: X-ray the sky and explore invisible wonders.

• Red night mode: Preserve your dark-adapted eyesight.

Please note: Sky Guide requires a gyroscope, so it doesn't work with iPad 1 or iPhone 3GS and earlier.

What's New in Version 4.2.3

• Countdown timer for New Horizons mission to Pluto! See the latest pictures of this mysterious world and track the spacecraft's distance as it closes in.
• Bug fixes.

Customer Reviews

One of the best apps there is

This s app is amazing. You can aim at any visible star in the sky, and instantly learn about it. See a moving light in the sky? Simply zoom in and tap on it-more than likely it's a satellite which you can see the name of (very cool). Overall it's a great app and extremely useful when wanting to know just what's out there.

A must for anyone into the night sky

This is a must have app for anyone just getting started in astronomy, even for people like me who have been into astronomy for 30 years I find this indispensable tool for astrophotography. Easy to use. Make sure you calibrate your compass on your phone before using.

Magnificent!

One of the most beautifully designed and programmed apps I've ever seen. Gives a breathtakingly beautiful new look to our old night sky, with absolutely no hassle or knowledge required. Hats off to the authors.

Get this app, you'll thank yourself later.
