Created by Terminal Eleven, the app is free on both iOS and Android. The app uses your phone sensors and screen to create an augmented reality view of what’s actually in the sky. You can easily turn your tablets or smartphone into an AR viewfinder to identify planets, constellations and stars. You can also use the app to track any object in the sky and get more information on specific objects, satellites and planets. There’s also a time travel feature which you can use to view the sky in the past or in the future depending on the movement of each object.

The app converts your smartphone or tablet into a mobile planetarium. The app uses the sensors on your mobile device to calculate your geographical position and use the information to display a detailed star map of where your device is pointed to the sky. The map provides useful information such as the constellations, names of planets and stars and much more.
