    The wonders of the universe

    I’ve been using this app for years now. I love to sit in my backyard on a starry night and use this app to look around the sky and identify everything I see. It really makes me feel a sense of wonder. The interface is thoughtfully designed. I love reading the monthly summaries of what to look for. Because of this app I’ve seen so many meteor showers and planets that I would have missed otherwise. Being able to pick out Saturn or Jupiter is just the coolest thing!

    Just love it!

    I just love this app so much. I like the soothing background music, the fact that you can see space objects below the horizon, and that you can learn details about the mapped objects.

    Best thing since slice bread

    Thank you App creator for this. Could you add a manual Star locator feature to this please. If not no worries still an A+ from me.

Is it a star or the planet Mars? Knowing what's up 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.

Have you ever wished you could recognize the constellations but didn't want to study those paper star charts? Sky Guide's augmented reality (AR) mode makes learning your way around the sky clear and effortless. 

Whether you're in search of the constellation Virgo, the Andromeda Galaxy or the next big meteor shower, Sky Guide is jam-packed with information and rich graphics that will satisfy the most curious minds.

Voyage to the past and future with cinematic time controls. Know where the Moon will be later in the evening so you can capture that perfect photo. See what the sky looked like the moment you were born or be an eyewitness to history's greatest comets.

It's a star! It's a plane! No, it's a satellite! Sky Guide features hundreds of bright satellites for you to identify and track. You can also receive notifications whenever the International Space Station flies over your location.

Use Sky Guide anywhere—on your evening dog walk, camping trips or in the classroom. The app works with or without Wi-Fi, cellular service or GPS, so everything is at your fingertips no matter where you go.

- Apple Watch: Sky Guide can send you a notification when an event is about to happen in the skies above your location, like when the International Space Station is due to fly over. You can also keep tabs on the latest solar activity or add our super-accurate Moon Complication to your Apple Watch face.
