All you have to do is point your AR enabled device* at the sky and Star Chart ∞ will tell you exactly what you are looking at.
Using state of the art GPS technology, an accurate 3D simulation of the visible universe, and a great deal of technical wizardry, Star Chart ∞ calculates – in real time - the current location of every star, planet and moon visible from Earth and shows you precisely where they are; even in broad daylight!
Want to know what that bright star is called? Point your device* at it – you might just find out it’s a planet!
Want to know what the night sky looks like to people on the other side of the earth? Well just point your device down!
Want to know where your star sign is in the sky? Star Chart ∞ will tell you all this and more.
Star Chart Infinite's extensive feature set includes:
- Just point and view. When you hold your device up to the sky, Star Chart ∞ will automatically start tracking your movements to match the sky *.
- Alternatively, look around the sky using finger gestures – perfect for armchair astronomers!
- Accurately depicts all the stars of the northern and southern hemispheres down to magnitude +16 - a total of approximately 2 million stars!
- Fly to and explore all the planets of the solar system, their moons and the sun all rendered in beautiful 3D with state of the art visual effects.
- Using the powerful Time Shift feature, simply tap the time button and smoothly shift up to 10,000 years forward or backward in time.
- Displays all 88 high resolution constellations, with imagery based on the beautiful artwork by 17th century astronomer Johannes Hevelius.

- Contains the location and dates of all the major meteor showers throughout the year. When you're gazing up at the sky during a meteor shower, Star Chart ∞ will ensure you are looking for them in the right place!
- Track comets as they pass in the night sky, trailing magnificent tails and potentially creating new meteor showers. Includes many famous comets such as ISON and Halley.
- Satellites pass overhead all the time. Track and explore the ISS, Hubble & many more of the brightest satellites.
- Tap on anything in the sky and get the facts on what you are looking at, including distance and brightness.
- Very powerful zoom function, lets you view the sky in extra detail, using intuitive finger gestures.
- Fully configurable. Star Chart displays only the sky objects that you are interested in.

What's New in Version 1.26
- Another attempted fix for the black-screen on relaunching Star Chart from a suspended state. This bug has had us perplexed for a while but we won't rest until it's fixed!
- Fix for AR Mode not working when Settings>Privacy>Location Services>System Services>Compass Calibration is set to off. This prevents Star Chart from getting a reading for True North, and so now it falls back on using Magnetic North in this situation.
This application is perfect for anyone who is very interested in astronomy. If you're looking for just a pretty looking visually stunning up this may not be the one for you. However, if you want a very accurate stargazing companion by this now.
Totally worth my time and $$$
There are so many tools to help guide you through our universe. It's so much fun and informative!!!! A+++
Nice to sit in the back yard and explain the constellations to the grand babies. We are having fun so what is that worth.
