Description

SkySafari is a powerful planetarium that fits in your pocket, puts the universe at your fingertips, and is incredibly easy to use!

Simply hold your device to the sky and quickly locate planets, constellations, satellites, and millions of stars and deep sky objects. Use Augmented Reality (AR) mode to blend a simulated sky chart with a real view of your surroundings. Or toggle on OneSky to see what other observers are looking at right now.

Packed with interactive information and rich graphics, discover why SkySafari is your perfect stargazing companion under the night sky.


Here's what's new in version 7:

+ Complete support for iOS 17 and iPhone 15. Version 7 brings a new and immersive stargazing experience.

+ OneSky - allows you to see what other users are observing, in real time. This feature highlights objects in the sky chart and indicates with a number how many users are observing a particular object.

+ Sky Tonight - jump to the new Tonight section to see what’s visible in your sky tonight. Expanded information has been designed to help plan your night and includes Moon & Sun info, calendar curations, and the best positioned deep sky and solar system objects.

+ Orbit Mode - Lift off from the Earth and travel to the planets, moons and stars.

+ Guided Audio Tours - Listen to more than four hours of audio narration to learn the history, mythology, and science of the heavens.

+ Galaxy View - Visualize the 3-D location of stars and deep sky objects in our Galaxy the Milky Way.

+ Pronounce - “Yoor-a- nus”, not “Your-anus”? The pronunciation guide in SkySafari will help you learn how to correctly pronounce the names of hundreds of celestial objects from different categories such as stars, constellations and planets.

If you haven't used SkySafari before, here's what you can do with it:

+ Hold your device up, and SkySafari will find stars, constellations, planets, and more! The star chart updates automatically with your real time movements for the ultimate stargazing experience.

+ See an eclipse now, in the past or in the future! Simulate the night sky from anywhere on Earth many years in the past or in the future! Animate meteor showers, comet approaches, transits, conjunctions, and other celestial events with SkySafari’s Time Flow.

+ Locate the Sun, Moon, or Mars from our extensive database and track the arrow to be directed to their exact locations in the sky before you. See spectacular views of Venus, Jupiter, Saturn, and other planets!

+ Learn about the history, mythology, and science of the heavens! Browse from hundreds of object descriptions, astronomical photographs, and NASA spacecraft images in SkySafari. Explore tons of NASA Space Missions!

Excellent!

Très bonne application, facile d’utilisation et bien complète. La réalité augmentée est bien intéressante mais pas toujours facile à synchroniser. Mais les détails des éléments du ciel sont bien documentés.

One little request!

This app is so intuitive and clear. If I could have one wish fulfilled, it would be to give me the option to hide the permanent top bar with time and location. In night time lighting, that thing is so darn bright, and without it, the view would be so much more immersive. Besides, I know my location!

These are thieves, I bought several options with the application and now almost everything has been unavailable since update! However, I had to buy these options and there they ask me for a subscription to have access to it!
