The night sky in your palm
Stars is a light application that displays the 88 constellations in the sky. Just touch the screen and see the universe moving around you.
The green line is the celestial equator, it is the projetion of the earth equator.
The red line is the ecliptic or the path of the sun. On the line is located the 12 constellations of the zodiac.
This application is standalone, it does not use any network resource.
What's New in Version 1.6
Perfect Little Star Chart
This app is exactly what it says it is--a chart of the stars. Double-tap to navigate between constellations and their names, the constellations and the names of individual but major stars, and no labels at all.
It doesn't move if you tilt your iPhone or iPad, because it is a CHART, and perfect for a view of the starscape regardless of time or location. Excellent for reviewing placement of stars and relative positions.
This app isn't fancy, but it does exactly what it says it does, and is an excellent resource. I look forward to using it as reference for my university's astronomy courses.
What on earth is this?
Pun intended...anyways this app is crap. It takes me directly to the stars with names and all, but it doesn't follow your phone. You have to scroll around the screen to see and read the different stars and patterns. AND, there isn't even a home screen, like the maps, to show where ur phone is pointing at at that exact moment. Terrible app, the other one is better.
A great resource
So this app doesn't deliver automatic gyroscopes and whatnot, but this app is very resourceful. It's simple enough to show you many constellations and that's good in itself. It helped me find the Lyra constellation, so this app does its job.
