“Close to perfect.”

“So neat. Kids would love this one.”
-TODAY show

“It’s a dazzling piece of software…”
-David Pouge

“Sky Guide is one of the coolest apps in the App Store…”

Apple Design Award 2014

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:

As a Graduate of Oxford University, using this app is the dream! From telling you the upcoming events throughout the years in space, to scanning the sky! It’s brilliant. 10/10 I highly recommend this app to anyone who loves space.

Worked once, now phone/app thinks what I am seeing is behind me. Deleted and downloaded again. Still doing the same. (iPhone XS) Still does not work. Feb 2nd 2019 Still not working. About 100 degrees out. What’s wrong. Compass works. Sat nav works. This app does not. I’ll try it out the magnetic case when it’s not cloudy. Could be the cause of the inaccuracy

I find this app perfect. All those times when I used to look up and wonder what those things were are now gone. My old Dad would have loved this. I would like more action and info about junk and satellites.
