SKY TONIGHT is a brand-new astronomical app for exploring the sky. It helps stargazers answer the three most common questions:

⁕ What is that bright dot in the sky?
⁕ What astronomical events can I see tonight?
⁕ How can I find the object I'm interested in?

Made by the developers of Star Walk apps, Sky Tonight is a customizable stargazing tool, that is designed for users with different needs and wants. You can adjust the constellation's appearance, set a reminder for any space body configuration, explore the unique relative to observer trajectory, set up a magnitude limit to filter out space objects, and much more.


► Point your device at the sky to see the real-time positions of space objects on the interactive sky map.
► Activate the Time Machine and determine the position of celestial bodies at different time periods.
► Use the augmented reality mode and see the sky map overlaid on the image from your device's camera.
► Get extended information about any sky object by tapping on its name.
► Stay updated on the latest news from the world of astronomy with the What's new section.
► Turn on the night mode to make your sky observation in the nighttime more comfortable.
► Filter the objects that appear on the sky map according to their visual brightness.
► Regulate the brightness of objects on the sky map.
► Spot dozens of asterisms along with the official constellations.
► Adjust the visible constellations and customize their representation on the screen.


Instead of the classic trajectory that shows the object’s trajectory in the celestial sphere relative to the Earth’s center, the app presents the object’s trajectory in the sky relative to an observer. A long touch on the trajectories relative to the observer will move the sky object to the selected point. While holding the touch, move your finger along the trajectory to change the time.

Make use of the flexible search — quickly find space objects, easily navigate across different objects and events’ types. Look for "stars", "mars moons", "mars conjunctions", "solar eclipse", and the app will show you all related objects, events, and articles!
There are also Trending and Recent categories in the search section. The first one presents the currently most popular objects, events, or news; the second category contains objects you recently selected.

Set event reminders on any time and date not to miss a solar eclipse, a Full Moon, or a star-planet configuration you're interested in.

Check out the calendar of celestial events that includes lunar phases, meteor showers, eclipses, oppositions, conjunctions, and other exciting events. Learn what astronomy events will occur this month or see what happened in the sky a year ago!
Verify the Stargazing Index calculated from a Moon phase, light pollution, cloudiness, and time when an object is visible. The higher this index is, the better the observation conditions are.

You don’t need several apps for your stargazing planning anymore; Sky Tonight contains all the info you need.

Awesome App

Stellar app! 😉✨🌌 It’s so cool how it allows you to see the constellations in your own night sky. My brother and I were wondering what a bright orange “star” was in the sky, and we found out that it was Mars from the app. But indeed it has much more than star and planet identification. The app gives so much information (and random fun trivia) about everything you see in the night sky. Just click on Mars and the app tells you innumerable tidbits about its whereabouts, orbit, planetary information, etc. Then, you can scroll in, and suddenly Mars’ moon will come into sight, and you can find tons of information on that too. Truly a brilliant app.

P.S. I forgot about the constellation info that’s super interesting, and also the app gives you a night sky calendar, which includes everything from the lunar schedule to when you have the best odds of seeing meteors ☄️from your own backyard.

This app blew my mind… because it’s SO BAD

So this all started in New Mexico when my parents and I saw tons of stars, the Northern Star, Orion, and the Big Dipper. It was so pretty that my mom suggested that I get an app to identify stars. So the day after, we drove home and I was looking for apps 2 days later. And I found THIS. Looked decent, 4.8 out of 5 stars, mostly rated 5 and 3. So I got it, and these are my 5 biggest complaints about this. 1. A freaking ad pops up every 10 seconds 🙄 2. I can do barely ANYTHING without a freaking subscription 😭 3. Doesn’t even recognize the town I live in as an actual town, so it’s probably tracking stars from like towns away 😠 4. It’s so freaking confusing to use 😤 5. Won’t let me zoom out/ in than just a little bit😡 To the publishers: You really could of done better, not loading up 50 ads an hour for games no person wants. Give these poor people more access to the app without a subscription that you need to do almost ANYTHING. Let people zoom in/out more to a smaller/wider view. And last, give like, a tutorial to stuff so it isn’t confusing 🫤. And if you respond to this, publishing guys, you BETTER improve the app, and not just send me a response that says to visit your website.



Man this app, so far is GREAT! And the subscription price is insanely cheap to boot! Been looking for one I liked for while now that I didn’t need a degree just to understand how to use it, etc, & at a price id be cost okay with. Also, I was actually wow’d by how I ended coming across this app, which was after got I read what info the app I was using had I saw something where could find out more about it. Link went right to it and a few sentences in, I literally stopped to see what app it was on, didn’t recognize it, so checked that it wasn’t already in by ‘queue’ of apps I download, rather than reading about, cuz besides how exhausting that gets, as I’m sure many of you can relate to by now IF you’re still reading my review, haha, anyway this app rocks. Plus couldn’t believe how cheap it is and just keep liking it more ‘n more.
Anyway, I think this app is great! Thank you!
