6.0 and up
Stellarium Mobile-Star Map shows you exactly what you see while looking at the stars.
Just by pointing your phone at the sky, you can identify stars, constellations and planets as well as satellites (such the ISS) in real-time.
The astronomy app has a simple user interface that is easy to use and allows for exploration of the night sky by children and adults.
Stellarium Mobile features:
For dates, times and locations, view a night sky simulation that accurately simulates stars and planets.
You can dive into a variety of stars, nebulas and galaxies as well as star clusters and other deep-sky objects.
Zoom to see realistic images of the Milky Way or Deep Sky Objects.
Find out how people in other parts of the globe see stars by choosing the shapes and illustrations for the constellations.
Track artificial satellites, such as the International Space Station.
You can simulate the atmosphere and landscape with realistic sunsets, sunrises, and atmospheric reflections.
Explore 3D renderings of the major planets in the solar system and their satellites.
To preserve your eyes’ ability to adapt to darkness, observe the sky in night mode (red).
Stellarium Mobile includes in-app purchases that allow you to upgrade to Stellarium Plus. This upgrade will allow you to see objects fainter than magnitude 8 (in the base version) as well as advanced observing capabilities.
Stellarium Plus features, which can be unlocked by in-app purchases:
Explore the vast collection of stars, galaxies and star clusters to reach the limits of your knowledge.
* All stars known: Gaia catalog of more than 1.69 billion stars
* All known planets, comets, and natural satellites (as well as many other minor objects in the solar system)
* The most well-known deep-sky objects: A combined catalog of more than 2 million nebulas or galaxies
Zoom can be used to zoom in on high-resolution images from deep-sky objects and planetary surfaces.
Even without internet access, you can still see a reduced set of data in this field: 2,000,000 stars, 2,000,000 Deep Sky Objects and 10k asteroids.
You can control your telescope via Bluetooth or WIFI. Any GOTO telescope compatible to NexStar, SynScan or LX200 protocols will work with Bluetooth.
Use the advanced observation tools to prepare your observations sessions for celestial object observability predictions and transit times.
Stellarium mobile – Star Map was created by the original creators of Stellarium, an open-source planetarium that is a well-known and popular astronomy application on Desktop PC.
These improvements are part of the update:
Performance optimizations –
Fix a startup crash on certain devices
Fix a bug that makes stars invisible on certain devices
