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.
- Using the powerful Time Shift feature, simply tap the time button and smoothly shift up to 10,000 years forward or backward in time.
- Displays all 88 constellations, with constellation imagery based on the beautiful artwork by 17th century astronomer Johannes Hevelius.
- 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.
So point your iPhone/iPad* at the sky and see what's out there!
* Augmented Reality mode is available on devices that include a built-in compass. Manual scrolling is supported on all other devices.

Video Play Review
I really like it because I can show my son how the constellations look like.
Gives you a good idea of where things are but needs to be able to be aligned to it points right where the stars it shows actually
I have tried lots of apps. This is one of the best.
I couldnt believe all the reviews when everyone was saying "I never write reviews but I just had to with this one" until I
downloaded it myself and found out why. Its incredible! I love it!
Thank you for the stars at my fingertips! ;)
Deleted all my other astronomy apps.
I purchased the full upgrade to include satellites and comets, etc. they never downloaded and I am constantly prompted to restore
purchases when using the app but app will shut down and the upgrade is
Love this app! Helps me plan my astrophotography sessions
Downloaded this app on cloudy day to help identify the few stars classroom could see. Hard to complain when software integrates
gyroscope functions, includes a night mode, and more for free.
(2★) Not completely accurate
Paid extra to be able to track Comet Lovejoy, but the location is completely inaccurate. There is no tracking information on
comets to show the path either. Going back to Skyview and will use star cha
(5★) Cool app!
This app is really cool. I love how you can point the phone in any direction to view a variety of space matter. Definitely worth
Black still there with latest update. Right after start up it tried to calibrate the compass and then the black screen on ar mode.
Hope that helps with debug. Like the app a lot when it is working.
I love it so much, really useful.
Wish location service were more finely tuned. Other than that, a really fun app to play with.
No pun intended. I love to be able to pull out my phone tap star chart and locate comets ( with upgrade)of course. If you like
star, planet and constellation matters this easy to use app is truly a ge
I am thoroughly enjoying this app. I have used it every day since installing it on thanksgiving day. I have expanded my knowledge
about our vast universe.
Love the ease of the app along with the interesting history notifications.
(4★) Good one
The product category is a bit crowded. This one is beautiful and usable.
(5★) uh, FREE?
blimeygo learn all of the info yourself if u think its less than five starstheyre mind benders doode
keeps you well up to date with celestial happenings. gorgeous display also.
This is a decent app, but the calibration is way off with Polaris showing due southwest on its worst days. If this was fixed I
would be willing to rate it at 5 stars, but until then it makes the app
Great reference. Enjoyable app to use.
(5★) Beautiful and breathtaking
As a school teacher and star enthusiast this app is amazing! My students were amazed to look at a bright sky or through a solid
wall and see the stars behind it! So was I! I highly recommend this down
This is my go-to reference, resource, and verification for my not-often-enough backyard stargazing. (Homemade 12.5" f8 Dobsonian)
(.and, yes, that is 100" focal length) So very convenient to have the
I use this app often. User friendly and very informative.

So much fun and very educational! :D
Best education stuff. Star Trek uses this.
(4★) STaR CHaRT
Good app, solid performance and relevant upgrades.
Very thorough and well developed to enhance understanding of this complex topic
There is a bug that avoids to open the settings when the app is portrait. This happens after the last update of the OS
(3★) Liked before iPad ISO 8
Really fun app until I got ISO 8. Now I open, I get one touch of screen n it freezes up. Sigh. Hope they are addressing an
update. I was really liking it!
I loved this app when I got it, it used to work fine. Now, when I go to settings, the whole thing locks up and I have to restart
it. I think it might have something to do with the ios8 release.
This app has more data and choices then any other paid app I have ever used. It tells me everything I need to know and I get the
option to adjust nearly everything.
Just a great app to sit out under the stars with. Lots of information and it works flawlessly. Just move the screen cross the sky
and watch the names of celestial bodies appear just as you are seeing
(3★) Since iOS 8 app not working
I love this app but it has not been working since the iOS 8 update. Please fix
I am really enjoying this app. It is so fun to be able to figure out what is overhead (or below) at any time. Also, now I can
figure out where to look for meteor showers without a lot of fuss. It is g
Excellent star chart. I use it to help find stars for celestial navigation.
Honestly this is the most useful app out there. With the upgrades this becomes 10X more helpful than my college astronomy course
book (and about 130 cheaper)! I recommend this app for anyone who wants
I love space! This app was perfect for me!
Both entertaining and informative app.
I love it. My kids love it. It makes looking at the stars much more than just a beautiful sight. Entertaining and educational. It
has helped me settle many disagreements about the heavenly bodies. Get
(5★) Try this app out on the night sky at a natl park
We used the star chart recently on a camping trip to Yosemite. Get to the darkest part of the park & be completely fascinated with
what you see. It makes the stars make so much more sense when put int
(5★) I Love it!️
It is so enjoyable to be able to see where we are in the Universe and to zoom in and get close up pictures of the many wonders out
there! I love sharing it with my students also.
The in app purchases are not transferable between devices. I have my phone and my iPad. Should I ever get a new device I will
have to buy everything all over again. I am searching for a replacement
Love the interface. Fun reference to learn about object locations, events and general knowledge base.
App is fascinating but not easy to navigate.
Awesome I really enjoy this APP
This app is very handy for people like me who like to do backyard stargazing. The night mode is ESPECIALLY useful because it makes
it easy to look at the stars and then your phone without blinding you
(5★) Great for kids!
Truly a fun app for me and my grandson.we spend a lot of time outside at night!
(5★) this app
It an amazing app, just amazing, i love it.
(3★) pretty, but.
not intuitive to use, and the constant barrage of offers to update or buy add-ons gets annoying.
This is one of the best apps I have gotten.Great for learning it has almost every detail U can think of! Even the names of all the
planets and stars
