SkyView - Explore the Universe app for the Android, iPad, iPhone,iPod and Apple Watch

Explore the stars, constellations and more!

SkyView – Explore the Universe is stargazing at it’s finest. Simply point your device in any direction and you can see the the galaxies, stars, constellations, planets and satellites.


Do you know, Where will the Sun rise and set? Is there a Full Moon tonight? Where is the constellation Orion? Am I looking at a bright star or a planet?

Find out the answers to these questions and more with SkyView. A great way to learn fun facts about the Universe and identify galaxies, stars, constellations, planets, and satellites (including the ISS and Hubble) passing overhead at your location

SkyView – Explore the Universe implements layers of augmented reality on top of your iPhone’s live camera view so you get a 3D interactive guide to everything that happens in the sky.

On the initial launch, you’ll open up to your camera and the layer of AR. The AR view may or may not be calibrated, but you can adjust the calibration manually in the Settings. Since it’s manual, you may need to know a bit about directions from where you are; swiping the screen left or right will adjust the augmented reality layer. If you want, adjust other settings of the AR layers as well. You can toggle the visibility of Sun, Moon, Planets, Dwarf Planets, Satellites, Stars, and Constellations; you have complete control over what you want to see in SkyView.
The size of planets and satellites can be tweaked to your liking, along with the custom date and time, in case you want to see how the sky will be next week. Another location besides your current one can be entered.

Select something on the screen by tapping the object and information will be displayed at the bottom of the screen, you can also follow the “Sky Path” – it shows where the object will be in the sky during a 24-hour period. Now you can check all of this on your Apple Watch.
