This app allows you to explore the sky using astronomical apps. It allows stargazers to answer three common questions: What is the bright dot in my sky? What are the astronomical events I can see tonight? How do I locate the object I am interested in? Star Walk app developers.
It is a flexible stargazing tool that can be customized to suit different users’ needs. You can change the appearance of the constellation, create a reminder for any configuration of space bodies, explore the unique relative trajectory to observer, and set up a magnitude limit that will filter out other space objects.

Interactive trajectories relative a observer
The app displays the object’s path relative to an observer instead of the traditional trajectory. The sky object will be moved to the chosen point by long-touching the trajectories. To change the time, touch the track with your finger while you hold it. *
The flexible search allows you to quickly locate space objects and navigate between different types of objects and events. The app will display all related objects, events and articles if you search for “stars”, mars moons, mars conjunctions, solar eclipse, or “stars”. In the search section, you will also find Recent and Trending categories. The first category displays the most recent news, events or objects. The second contains items you have recently selected. *
Reminders for events that can be customized
You can set event reminders for any date and time you want to not miss a full moon, a solar eclipse or other star-planet configuration. *
Astronomy calendar featuring a stargazing index, weather forecast and an astronomy calendar
The celestial calendar includes eclipses, meteor showers and oppositions as well as conjunctions and other exciting events. Find out what astronomy events are scheduled for this month and what occurred in the sky last year! Check out the Stargazing Index, which is calculated using a Moon phase, light pollution and cloudiness as well as the time an object is visible. This index will indicate how good the conditions for observation are.
Sky Tonight is all you need to plan your stargazing.
