M+Stellar navigates you through the starry night sky. You can easily find out names of the stars, constellations and planets even without a planisphere. In conjunction with sensors such as electronic compass, inclinometer, accelerometer and GPS on your Windows 8 devices, M+Stellar displays the star chart just as actually viewed real-time, on site, and in the orientation of the device. No need to set the date and time, which is required with planispheres. User-friendly for everyone at any age, M+Stellar is an ultimate star watching tool at your fingertips, helpful as a mini star encyclopedia, or a pointer to currently visible planets. Realistic graphic shows the stars twinkling, the moon wax and wane, gradation of the twilight sky over the landscape, hazy glow of the milky way, along with the constellation lines/pictures whenever desired. Precise simulations are available for skies from 1900 to 2099, which means you can see what the sky was like on the day you were born!
