Features of GoSkyWatch Planetarium:

  • It's one of the most amazing Apps for iPad ever!
  • See the relative position of the stars and planets.
  • Learn more about our galaxy and solar system.
  • You can start by stargazing from inside.
  • A wonderful way to begin astronomy.

Right now in the west, Alpha Centauri is shining just above the horizon. Facing east, the moon and Neptune have both just risen and will continue to light up the sky for several hours.  I know both of these things because I am standing outside in the dark on my front terrace, using this amazing iPad App. Lifting the iPad above my head and moving it across the sky, the stars which I can see behind the iPad are illuminated on the iPad screen.  Holding it down allows me to see the location of the stars and planets in the solar system - straight through the planet!  Incredible!

Really hi-tech sci-fi stuff!!

This is an App that has been on the iPad since the day it became available.  Not only will it show you the location of the stars, planets, galaxies, and other planetary bodies, but you can see their relative location during the day, or even from inside the house!  There is a Moon calendar as well as sunrise and sunset times.  You can search the stars by location, and you can also see what someone else is seeing in their sky in another part of the world. 

This app is so easy to use, you literally just point it in the direction of the sky and it does the rest for you, a great app for learning all about the sky, even if you aren't big on astronomy this is WELL WORTH IT!

This is a truly amazing app which utilises the features of the iPad in a way I never would have thought possible... but now I find myself using on a regular basis. 

Brilliance! GoSkyWatch Planetarium is one of the best Apps for iPad - out of them all!
