Move your device around, and this app will calculate the device’s orientation and also your GPS location, so it will provide you with an accurate presentation of the arrangement of celestial bodies in the night sky.*
✦ Use Time Machine to diversify sky observation and explore the sky map of different periods. To do this, tap the clock icon in the top left corner and slide the right edge dial down for the past and up for the future position sky objects.
