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.

Sky guide is a Nice but is slightly boring. You should add more fun elements to the game. I do not use the app very often, but I enjoy when I do.

I love this app so much!!!! I upgraded to the supermassive version however, I feel like I haven’t gotten any notification of satellite passes or anything really since I’ve updated... My family and I went on a camping trip to Estes Park (Rocky Mountain National Park area) and I thought I would try to use it one night and it worked in the middle of nowhere!!! Was even able to spot out a piece of a satelite zooming across the sky!! SO COOL

New update is a blast. With the new upate it now provides information that can help stargazing experience, such as weather, visible planets and dark sky finder. Also now I can use siri shortcut to find a objects in the sky quick and easy.

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.

This has been great to teach my girls about the stars and see their fascination. I regularly use it while out filming at night to choice locations for filming to maximise the position of the stars.
