Star Walk 2 lets you stargaze at any time during the day or night. Just point your iPad or iPhone in any direction, and it will locate constellations, planets, nebulae, and more.


Beautiful artwork: When you focus in on a particular constellation, its corresponding artwork appears to give you a visual representation.

Powerful search: Star Walk 2 lets you search by constellations, planets, nebulae, individual stars, satellites, and even dwarf planets. You can actually see each of these in real time, so if any are unavailable to view, it will show up as grayed-out.

See real-time data: The Sky Live feature displays real-time data for the Sun, Moon, and any visible planets. For example, it shows you the sunrise and sunset, the phases of the Moon, and when visible planets actually come into view. What's more, you can scroll forward and backward to specific days.


Paid upgrades: Some features that come standard in Star Walk 1 now require additional payment.

Bottom Line

Regardless of whether you're an amateur or professional astronomer, a student, or just curious about your surroundings, Star Walk 2 is a wonderful educational tool to have on hand to gain a deeper understanding of astronomy. We highly recommend it.
