***From the developers of the world famous Star Walk stargazing guide, Apple Design Award winner***
Sky Live now works with Apple Watch to alert you of upcoming astronomical events and tell you everything going on in the sky over your location at the moment.
"For stargazers, Sky Live is exactly the app we've always needed to find out just how much of the stars we can see at night and when we'll be able to see our favourite constellations and planets." by Nathan Snelgrove, AppStorm.net.
Stunning space photos combined with everything you need to know about stargazing conditions for your location tonight. Stargazer or not - this app will spark your curiosity.
The most accurate hourly conditions for stargazing are estimated on seven criteria and summarized in one Stargazing Index that will give you all the information you need to make your plans. The formula was developed by a mathematician on the Star Walk team and takes into account:
- Is there anything interesting in the sky tonight?
- Can I see Saturn?
- Is it going to be cloudy?
- Is it going to rain?
- Too much light?
- Is the Moon too bright for stargazing?
You will also get detailed reports on position and trajectory of the International Space Station, the Sun, the Moon, Jupiter and other planets. The forecast is available for seven days ahead.
If you would like your photos to be featured in the app, please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
What's New in Version 1.2.2
Fixed a few bugs:
- light pollution index fixed
- layout for widget and watch app
- localizations for push notifications
- list of astronauts for ISS
Would rate 5 stars, but...
It's a great app over all, don't get me wrong. You just need your coordinates if you're not in a major city. If you can put small towns in (which is the most likely location stargazing. Small town=bright sky you catch my drift) it'll be easier for most stargazers since that's where they'll probably be. Rural locations.
Over all though the app is great. You could use it as a weather app if you needed too also. Comes in very handy.
Great One Stop Tool
I have several tools in my arsenal for projecting sky conditions and other related observing information. But, this is the first one I hit, often several times a day. It's got a simple user interface, is accurate and updated frequently and has no quirks. A pleasure to use in all respects.
A great and handy app. I use it every day to check out sunrise/set times, planetary rising/set times and positions, visibility outlook, etc. It's also an excellent companion app to Star Walk 2 the beautiful, full featured astronomy app.
