Apps for Astronomy

Nov 29, 2011

I love staring up on a clear night and seeing all the stars that dot the sky above Earth. It’s amazing to think about how small we really are down here and how much more there is out there. These apps are some I’ve collected and use while I’m Stargazing.

Sky Map

Google Sky Map is by far my favorite star and sky application. I love that it uses the gyroscope and GPS in your device to allow you to point this where ever you want and see what’s out there.


Star Chart

Find a star in the sky and click on it and get more information about it. Pretty handy!


Vortex Planetarium – Astronomy

This app is similar to Star Chart. You can point your device at any star and get more information about it.


space junk lite

This app will show you stars, planets and even satellites!


Satellite AR

Another awesome app for showing satellites. One of the cool things that it does is shows you the path of the satellite, just point your device and see the overlaid AR.
