Starry - View stars Day&Night is the most beautiful stargazing app you’ve ever seen on a mobile device. It will become your go-to interactive astro guide to the night sky, following your every movement in real-time and allowing you to explore over 200, 000 celestial bodies with extensive information about stars and constellations that you find.

A window to the stars has never been more beautiful and easy to use. Just aim your iPhone at the sky to identify stars, planets and more in any direction you point. Experience the wonders of the night in ways you’ve only dreamed of.

Is it a star or Saturn? Learning what’s in your sky is now effortless with Sky Map. Hold it up and Planetarium Guide automatically aligns itself to your surroundings without any setup required! Looking for the constellation Virgo? No problem. You can search for thousands of celestial objects and be guided exactly where to look in your sky.

Sky Map contains immersive visuals unlike any star app you have seen before. Based on a high-resolution sky panorama created by one of the app developers, Planetarium Guide is the product of over 37,000 actual photographs! This exclusive imagery gives you stunning realism that lets you witness millions of stars—not just a few thousand simulated points! Plus, you can control the intensity of the stars with HDR brightness gestures to dial in your local viewing conditions.
