SkySafari is an Android application that allows you to watch planets and stars using your mobile device. This astronomy guide offers a planetarium experience in the palm of your hand.
The main function is allowing you to explore the universe and learn astronomy in an engaging fun way. You can turn your mobile device to the sky and effortlessly locate planets, constellations, satellites, stars and deep sky objects. There are detailed interactive data and beautiful graphics.
Like with the Star Chart app, you can discover what the sky looked like thousands of years ago. The utility simulates how the sky looked in the past or will look in the future from anywhere on Earth. It is possible to animate meteor showers, comet appearances, conjunctions and other celestial events.
SkySafari provides users with rich graphics of galaxies, constellations, clusters and nebulae as well as all major planets and moons. You may find dozens of asteroids, comets and satellites, including the International Space Station. Plus, with the additional purchase of Orbit Mode, you can even try leaving Earth and travel through the solar system like a NASA cosmos probe.
