Night Sky - 2017 US Solar Eclipse Ready!

From the creators of the original Night Sky app comes the most advanced and beautiful stargazing app ever created. 

Quickly identify Stars, Planets, Constellations and Satellites above by simply holding your iPhone, iPad or Apple Watch to the Night Sky!  This is all done magically.  Whether you are looking for a constellation or the International Space Station, let Night Sky direct you to it.

Night Sky ventures into territories no stargazing app has ever gone to before. Land on the surface of the Moon and experience Moon Tours of the Apollo 11 and Apollo 15 landing sites.  

Night Sky is the most beautiful and advanced stargazing app available.  

Additional Features: 

- Power Sky View with Glass Constellations:  Completely re-engineered for iOS 10 using Metal with 115000 new celestial objects, beautiful Glass Constellations, new Light Spectrum vision with mesmerising visuals, two finger gesture to increase or decrease Light Pollution, & seamless multilayered animated 3D models. 

- Magic comes to Apple Watch:  We have brought Sky Tracking to Apple Watch in Night Sky on watchOS 3.  Simply raise your wrist to the sky to quickly identify stars, planets and constellations!  As you lower your wrist you are presented with a Celestial Compass which gives you an overview of all the Stars and Planets currently visible around you.  Use the Digital Crown to Space Travel forwards or backwards in time in Sky View and on the Celestial Compass.  All-important celestial events happening above such as planet rise and set times, and ISS flyovers appear on your watch face in one Consolidated Complication.  We’ve also added beautiful animated push notifications for the International Space Station and all planet rise and set times.

Premium Features:

- Land on the Moon:  Moon Tours - One giant leap for innovation.  We’ve accurately recreated the Apollo 11 and Apollo 15 lunar landing sites in a 3D environment as they would appear if you we’re there today!  You are able to explore yourself or be taken on a guided tour of the sites and learn interesting scientific and geographical facts about our Moon while you are actually on it. (Please note Moon Tours are only available on devices that support Metal rendering, iPhone 5S or newer, iPad Air or newer)

- Night Sky Tonight:  Get a totally customized experience, Night Sky Tonight gives you an animated view of the sky above you from Sunset to Sunrise. You can scrub through the night to see all celestial events happening local to you.  Within Night Sky Tonight get a breakdown of the stargazing conditions, light pollution, local stargazing sites, and also all planet rise and set times.  You can even tap objects to get reminders, such as when Mars is rising, or when the International Space Station is next flying past! 

- Latest News:  Get regular updates about the Night Sky above from our very own astrophysicist and Night Sky Editor.
