► As you hold your phone up and point it towards the sky, the star map 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.
► Get a deeper understanding of the constellation`s scale and place in the night star map. Enjoy observing wonderful 3D models of constellations, turn them upside down, read their stories.
