Description

Spot over 200,000 stars, planets, constellations, and satellites in the night sky. Star Walk 2 is a next-generation tool for not only learning the exact position of stars, planets, constellations, comets, ISS, satellites, star clusters, nebulae and meteor showers in the night sky but also for investigating its’ depth like watching constellations, nebulae and satellites from aside. Star Walk 2 is an exquisite stargazing tool that combines astronomical data with premium technology to deliver an effortless journey through thousands of stars, comets, and constellations. All you have to do is point your device at the sky. “She’s a beauty.” The Next Web “Star Walk 2 is a terrific introduction to astronomy for young and old. It’s also handy for serious stargazers for observing planning.” TUAW “For those who enjoy the original app, Star Walk 2 is worth the upgrade — the interface is gorgeous. Anyone with even a passing interest in astronomy should grab Star Walk 2.” iLounge “It is worth every penny.” PadGadget DISCOVER NEW DEPTHS Star Walk 2 is the first astronomy guide to introduce plausible three-dimensional models of planetary nebulae. Star groupings of the 88 officially recognized constellations are also presented in volume. You can see them as separate entities, turn them around and take a look from the other side. Complemented by articles on connected myths and history, this is the most comprehensive collection of information on constellations.* REAL-TIME MOTION TRACKING As you hold your phone up and point it towards the sky, Star Walk 2 follows your motions using the built-in gyroscope to match the map on your screen to the stars seen from your location. Easily find any star, constellation, or satellite in the sky by tapping Search. Star Walk will indicate the direction to look in. NEW POINT OF VIEW Unlike on a plain photograph, every star in Star Walk 2 has coordinates. That means you can look at objects, for instance, a constellation from any vantage point in space, not to mention the ultimate accuracy of your map for your exact location. NOW AND LATER Star Walk 2 gives you accurate daily data on current moon phase, time of sunset and sunrise, and elevation of planets. With just one slide you can see how the sky will look later tonight or throughout the year. PRO STARGAZING Special night-time soft red mode will help you preserve night vision when stargazing with a telescope. You can see the sky in X-Ray (and 5 more filters) to study the invisible structure of the universe. Live tracking for over 8,000 satellites will help you catch iridium flares, and detailed articles will satisfy the most curious inquirer.

No app like it.

This is a very seamless, ergonomic and brilliant app. The slider for fine tuning in on dates is a bit too sensitive. If you could have a "save location/time" capability too, like a map point for the future, that would make it perfect!

A Star app

So much for such a low price. This is really a nicely done app. I've already learned a lot from just browsing around this app. Plus it qualifies as cool imo.

No manual location entry

First the full price is actually $3.99. You pay .99 first, then an additional $2.99 to get all the features. This might be worth it except there is no manual override for your location. On my Surface Pro 3 with just WiFi, the auto-locate is my ISP more than 200 miles away. The cities listed are no where near my rural latitude and longitude making this program less useful for me and others living in rural areas far away from medium-large cities. Timing is everything in astronomy, especially with satellites and this will not work on tablets and desktops without the ability to add an exact latitude and longitude. Also does not show satellites overhead in real time. You have to search for a Satellite by name, so this is not useful for satellite watching. Disappointed, but does have a beautiful and easy to use interface with lots of information, but really needs manual location entry and real time satellite viewing then maybe 5 stars. Good start but definitely needs some more work.
