Is it a star or the planet Mars? Knowing what's up in your night sky is now effortless with Sky Guide. Hold your iPhone or iPad up and Sky Guide automatically aligns itself to the stars above you—no setup required.

Have you ever wished you could recognize the constellations but didn't want to study those paper star charts? Sky Guide's augmented reality (AR) mode makes learning your way around the sky clear and effortless.

Whether you're in search of the constellation Virgo, the Andromeda Galaxy or the next big meteor shower, Sky Guide is jam-packed with information and rich graphics that will satisfy the most curious minds.

Voyage to the past and future with cinematic time controls. Know where the Moon will be later in the evening so you can capture that perfect photo. See what the sky looked like the moment you were born or be an eyewitness to history's greatest comets.

It's a star! It's a plane! No, it's a satellite! Sky Guide features hundreds of bright satellites for you to identify and track. You can also receive notifications whenever the International Space Station flies over your location.

Use Sky Guide anywhere—on your evening dog walk, camping trips or in the classroom. The app works with or without Wi-Fi, cellular service or GPS, so everything is at your fingertips no matter where you go.

Additional Features:

- Huge stellar catalog: 2.5 million stars!

- Filter: X-ray the sky and explore invisible wonders.

- Red night mode: Preserve your dark-adapted eyesight.

- Notification Center Widget: At-a-glance essentials including rise and set times for the Sun, Moon and planets.

- Apple Watch: Sky Guide can send you a notification when an event is about to happen in the skies above your location, like when the International Space Station is due to fly over. You can also keep tabs on the latest solar activity or add our super-accurate Moon Complication to your Apple Watch face.

Optional Features:

- Sky Guide SUPERMASSIVE. This extensive add-on gives you access to incredible high definition zooming, 680× larger star and deep sky catalogs, and exclusive cinematic tours.

Join the millions who have discovered a more personal connection to the stars with Sky Guide. It might forever change the way you look up.
What's new in v8.1
Sky Guide is ready for iOS 13 and iPadOS 13!

+ ARKit 3
Sky Guide’s AR viewer takes advantage of ARKit 3 to embed 3D objects into the environment more naturally. With ARKit's people occlusion, humans will realistically block rendered objects behind them.

+ Siri Shortcuts
“Hey Siri, where’s the Space Station?”
Sky Guide has new Siri shortcuts to quickly locate planets, stars, and satellites. Use the convenient new shortcuts page in the app to set up and manage your voice shortcuts, or use the iOS Shortcuts app for even more customization.

+ Dark Mode
Sky Guide has been designed for the dark and is perfectly at home in iOS’s new dark mode. The main app, today widget, and notifications have all gotten “dark adapted“ for the new look.

+ Language Setting
Want to use a different language in Sky Guide than you do for other apps? Now you change the language in Sky Guide’s preferences menu.
