Sky Guide

Sky Guide makes stargazing simple. Just hold it overhead to automatically find stars, constellations, planets, satellites and more. With so many fun and powerful features, there is something for all ages and experience levels!

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.

Additional Features:

- Huge stellar catalog: 2.5 million stars!

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

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

- Notification Center Widget: At-a-glance essentials including rise and set times for the Sun, Moon and planets.

- 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.

Optional Features:

- Sky Guide SUPERMASSIVE. This extensive add-on gives you access to incredible high definition zooming, 680× larger star and deep sky catalogs, and exclusive cinematic tours. SUPERMASSIVE includes a free two-week trial followed by an auto-renewing annual subscription. (See In-App Purchases section for the price available in your country. Payment will be charged to your iTunes account, and your account will be charged for renewal 24 hours prior to the end of the current period. Auto-renewal may be turned off at any time by going to your account settings after purchase.) Terms of use: fifthstarlabs.com/terms-of-use

Join the millions who have discovered a more personal connection to the stars with Sky Guide. It might forever change the way you look up.

Demo of the app, Sky Guide.

Bug fixes New in 6.7 + Enabled higher resolution camera in AR mode + Added the Tesla Roadster launched in February by SpaceX's Falcon Heavy rocket + Added three comets that will be observable later this year + Added new amateur radio satellite AO-92 and de-orbited Tiangong-1 + New for SUPERMASSIVE subscribers: 1.7 billion stars now in your pocket! This is the latest star catalog from the European Space Agency's groundbreaking Gaia mission. When you launch Sky Guide the new catalog will download and replace the old catalog. No additional storage is required since the additional stars are streamed from a server. We find it hard to believe that it has now been five years since Sky Guide debuted on the App Store! To all those who have had moments under the stars with Sky Guide, THANK YOU, and we hope you continue to spread the word to those who have not yet caught the stargazing fever! -Nick and Chris

A seriously spectacular app! I’ve had this for quite a while now, I use it to navigate through the night sky, determine what celestial object it is I see, and just get to know the universe we live in. Recently subscribed to Supermassive and it is truly mesmerising, well worth it for only £10 a year, considering how much this app has to offer even without Supermassive. A perfect app for anyone who loves astronomy.

Always been a fan of this app, and it just gets better and better every time. Being a Supermassive subscriber, I now have access to 1.7 billion stars too... I’ll NEVER be able to even find those, fantastic work!

I purchased this app as a photographer so have you considered doing a clip explaining for us who are not up with the stars on how we can plan a photograph of the Milky Way. Such as using the date & time to see the Milky Way and may be get a compass heading.
