You can now have a virtual star chart in your pocket. Look through the eyes of your iPhone or iPad* to see a high-tech window into the whole visible universe.
All you have to do is point your AR enabled device* at the sky and Star Chart will tell you exactly what you are looking at.
Using state of the art GPS technology, an accurate 3D simulation of the visible universe, and a great deal of technical wizardry, Star Chart calculates – in real time - the current location of every star, planet and moon visible from Earth and shows you precisely where they are; even in broad daylight!
Want to know what that bright star is called? Point your device* at it – you might just find out it’s a planet!
Want to know what the night sky looks like to people on the other side of the earth? Well just point your device down!
Want to know where your star sign is in the sky? Star Chart will tell you all this and more.
Star Charts features include:
- Just point and view. When you hold your device up to the sky, Star Chart will automatically start tracking your movements to match the sky *.
- Alternatively, look around the sky using finger gestures – perfect for armchair astronomers!
- In a single app of less than 30MB, Star Chart dynamically scales its visuals and capabilities across all iOS devices to meet the high end capabilities of a retina display iPad while also running smoothly on the earliest iPhones and iPods.
- Accurately depicts all the visible stars of the northern and southern hemispheres - a total of approximately 120,000 stars!
- Fly to and explore all the planets of the solar system, their moons and the sun all rendered in beautiful 3D with state of the art visual effects.

- Includes the complete Messier catalogue of 110 exotic deep sky objects.
- Tap on anything in the sky and get the facts on what you are looking at, including distance and brightness.
- Very powerful zoom function, lets you view the sky in extra detail, using intuitive finger gestures.
- Fully configurable. Star Chart displays only the sky objects that you are interested in.
- Allows you to view the sky underneath the horizon. So now you can see where the sun is, even at night!
- Manually set your location to find out what the sky looks like from anywhere in the world.
- Supports dynamic device orientation viewing. Allows you to view the night sky whilst holding your iPhone/iPad* at any angle.

If I say something it is surely heard in the vacuum thanks to our creator forever is neared in light years great,
This is one of my favorite apps. I love astrology class and this just brought it all back. Works so well
I am just starting to develop an orientation to the night sky as a brand new amateur astronomer. This has been fantastic for me! I
have even used it for Boy Scouts.
(4★) Love it
I live away from the city so I enjoy using the app in the dark sky to identify what each star is.
I love this app ! My new favorite !
this app is completely accurate and perfect for star gazing. (just so you know the big dipper is ursa major when looking for it)
(5★) Excellent for astronomy lovers
This app is really useful for avid stargazers like me. All the celestial objects are well detailed and the user interface is
perfect. The in-app purchases are totally worth it if you want to go for so
Augmented Reality fails over and over. Ability to type in an object and have the app show arrows for where to point rarely works.
I like this app a lot. Great away to view the night sky. Great app
Love this app. Looking forward to sharing this with my kid as she gets bigger. Such amazing detail and info.
Love it on my smartphone. Help my dd with science.
Great App. I really cannot add much to what has been said by other users. Well worth it!
This app allows you to literally point your ipad at the sky snd it shows you what you are seeing, you can set up to label various
objects, gives you meteor shower notifications with best viewing site
Great learning tool. Just hold it up to the night sky and learn. Like having your own private Carl Sagan everytime you go out to
Exactly what I need for my astronomy class, good for just stargazing as well
Great app. Informative, and above all- FUN!
This is the best app. I have found for searching the universe and all the mysteries of it. I just wish I had more time to do more
research. It is so interesting almost hypnotizing once you get started
(4★) It looks amazing!
The search options and the looks are great. The random updates about astronomers and historic dates are cool, I just wish they
made some of the info more available. Over all, I love this; it is fun in
Cool app love the details I recommend it
(Well I did before too, but what an incredible way to appreciate His creations.) It felt like I was using some advanced piece of
technology out a sci-fi movie.
There is a lot of useful information and graphics. Though it is a little confusing to navigate at time.
Apps easy to use with practice. Unsteadiness in the display seems to go away with period recalibration of the compass and
resetting your location. It is easier to select an object if you have auto pan
Great app, easy to use and a lot of fun.
Great current information to use.
Demasiado buena la recomiendo al 100%
Great educational and entertainment app. Wish I had this when I was in school.
I can see planets and constellations even Pluto and the sun, you can also see videos of planets! So cool!
(5★) Cool App
I love the simplicity of this app. The only drawback is there are far too many notifications. Overall great app!
A must have for any star gazer!
Enjoy having this resource when I need it especially the meteor showers!
Reminds me when meteor showers are occurring.
All my friends who see it want it. Going to be my star chart when I use my new reflector telescope. Just love this.
This app is awesome! I love that you can click on a planet and it will zoom in and tell you information on it.
(5★) Great app
I really like this app, it has lots of cool stuff to check out.
(4★) Groovy as the ol guys say!
Just received a telescope and this has been very helpful in finding what I am looking at. I use this app every time I get the
(5★) Awesome app
I really love this app. I have never had any problems with it. It is great for the young and older folks!
This is very interesting app for those related to astro
(4★) Nice app, would be even better with more features
The basic app is nice but a bit annoying that just about everything else is an add on at a cost. It might be better to include a
few of those "add ons" for a fair price for the basic app. Then offer
I love this app so much! Get it now!
The newest update is AMAZING! I got star chart ages ago and I LOVE it! Amazing! 5 stars!
(5★) As good as it gets
Absolutely love this app. Just bought a new reflector telescope and this will help me find all the good things. Just wish the darn
clouds would go away at night and let see clear sky.
Love it. I have seen more meteors in the last year than in my entire life!
Best app EVER(For stars and all)(Minecraft is better)
This app is amazing for non professionals.
Really am enjoying the app. Wish the rain would go away! So I can use my telescope with it !
Is there a way to mark things to search for as a reminder when I am out?
The ap is tons of fun if you like to star gaze. Plus you get to impress your friends with your star knowledge!
(5★) Love it!
Makes it easy to find my way around the night sky.
Easy to use. Clear imagery. Includes all planets, stars and constellations.
(5★) Perfect telescope companion
Enhanced my telescoping experience tenfold!
What a great app! Makes star gazing easy and educational.
I like the app, but it keeps crashing and I purchased the extended star chart for 9.99 amd it crashes when It downloads at about
Very cool and friendly way to have fun while learning so much about the stars. So many childhood memories about the night sky
watching the stars while camping or at the beach at night, you get the ide
I upgraded to the better star maps and mapping the planets moons. Love it
Works well on both iPhone & iPad, iPad is bigger. Bought the comet upgrade also for ISON. Wish it had Telrad circles.
This app is great for beginners to use to help learn more about the stars and constellations. The add-ons are great for learning
more about the night sky to help increase the users knowledge
I reviewed once before with 5 stars, but since iOS7, the app will not stop crashing. Please update, I am willing to pay.
I agree. Crashes in iOS 7 when you tap on a planet. Needs a fix. Otherwise, pretty nifty.
The app is great I can look around and see all the stars around me. 5 stars for this app!
This app is everything I expected and More. Maybe I will be able to get home now once and for all. Stargazerxes
Great App but crashes on IOS 7 when selecting a comet or planet to go to.
(2★) Help please
