Teacher Review

In SkyView Universe, kids can see what's in the sky above them. They point the device in any direction and see what planets, constellations, and even satellites are in the sky. When they see something, they can tap on it, and then read a bunch of facts about it:
 
Kids can learn about astronomy and tons of sky-related factoids, from astronauts and their missions to distances of stars from Earth. They can build their research skills by tracking and recording the trajectory of their favorite planet. SkyView Universe is well-suited to give kids who are already interested in astronomy the information they seek and also to inspire kids who may not have wondered about the sky to be more curious. SkyView Universe gives loads of science information with some cool features, but the amount and depth of exploration is up to the kids. 

From the Developer

SkyView® Free brings stargazing to everyone, and it's totally free! Simply point your iPhone, iPad, or iPod at the sky to identify stars, constellations, satellites, and more!

Just like a car’s GPS, SkyView guides you where to aim your binoculars or telescope to find any space object. Works with all Apple® iPhones®, including the NEW iPhone® 6 and iPhone® 6 Plus! Available in stores and online, the Space Navigator binoculars, spotting scope, telescope, or deluxe telescope make the perfect gift!

SkyView is an Augmented Reality app that lets you see just what delights the sky has to offer.  You don't need to be an astronomer to find stars or constellations in the sky, just open SkyView® Free and let it guide you to their location and identify them. SkyView® Free is a beautiful and intuitive stargazing app that uses your camera to precisely spot and identify celestial objects in sky, day or night. Find your favorite constellations as they fade in and out while you scan across the sky, locate the Moon, discover distant galaxies, and witness satellite fly-bys.
