– Meteor showers
– Layer by layer planets and missions
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 recognized 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 your phone towards the sky, Star Walk 2 follows your motions using the built-in digital compass to match the map on your screen to the stars seen from your location. Easily find any star, constellation, satellite or other celestial body in the sky by tapping Search. Star Walk will guide you by indicating the direction to look at.
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.
