Star Walk 2 - Guide to the Night Sky to Watch Stars, Planets, Meteor Showers & Constellations

*** Free For Limited Period ***

Description

Star Walk 2 is a next-generation tool for not only learning the exact position of stars, planets, constellations, comets, ISS, satellites, star clusters, nebulae and meteor showers in the night sky but also for investigating its’ depth like watching constellations, nebulae and satellites from aside.

BEST OF 2014: The next generation of the best-selling Star Walk, winner of Apple Design Award, used by over 10 million people.

Star Walk 2 is an exquisite stargazing tool that combines astronomical data with premium technology to deliver an effortless journey through thousands of stars, comets, and constellations. All you have to do is point your iPhone or iPad at the sky.

NEW IN STAR WALK 2

All-new stunning design:
- New simpler and cleaner interface in vibrant colours for retina displays
- Atmospheric visual and sound effects, stirring soundtrack
- Exclusive handcrafted artwork for constellations, inspired by minimalist low-poly art

Incredible 3D models of celestial bodies*:
- Planetary nebulae
- Constellations
- Dwarf planets, comets, and asteroids
- Man-made satellites
- Layer by layer planets and missions

*Available through In-App Purchase. Constellations are available for free for limited time.

*No Internet connection required*

Universal app that works on iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.

DISCOVER NEW DEPTHS
Star Walk 2 is the first astronomy guide to introduce plausible three-dimensional models of planetary nebulae. Star groupings of the 88 officially recognised constellations are also presented in volume. You can see them as separate entities, turn them around and take a look from the other side. Complemented by articles on connected myths and history, this is the most comprehensive collection of information on constellations.*

REAL-TIME MOTION TRACKING
As you hold your phone up and point it towards the sky, Star Walk 2 follows your motions using the built-in gyroscope to match the map on your screen to the stars seen from your location. Easily find any star, constellation, or satellite in the sky by tapping Search. Star Walk will indicate the direction to look in.

NEW POINT OF VIEW
Unlike on a plain photograph, every star in Star Walk 2 has coordinates. That means you can look at objects, for instance, a constellation from any vantage point in space, not to mention the ultimate accuracy of your map for your exact location.

NOW AND LATER
Star Walk 2 gives you accurate daily data on current moon phase, time of sunset and sunrise, and elevation of planets. With just one slide you can see how the sky will look later tonight or throughout the year.

PRO STARGAZING
Special night-time soft red mode will help you preserve night vision when stargazing with a telescope. You can see the sky in X-Ray (and 5 more filters) to study the invisible structure of the universe. Live tracking for over 8,000 satellites will help you catch iridium flares, and detailed articles will satisfy the most curious

This is one of the slickest astronomy apps out there, and its currently free saving you £2.49 of your hard earned money! Yes you can purchase the in app purchases if you want, however it functions for most people very well without them. You have a device costing about £300-£400 and are quibbling about paying a few measly pounds? What can you buy for that packet of cigarettes pint of beer (barely in some places)?

Come do us all a favour and keep your ill thought out negative comments to yourself.

Not quite sure which version you are using (free one perhaps), I don't think it is this one. I have not experienced a single advert. You do realise this a paid version gone free temporarily and not a free version?
