What's it about

Stellarium is a functioning planetarium on a mobile device. Stellarium has long been a well-regarded open-source planetarium app on desktop devices. Mobile versions for Android and iOS let you take your sky guide with you when you head out to stargaze. (The Android version is a free download, with in-app purchases unlocking features; Stellarium Mobile Plus is a $9.99 app on iOS.)

The mobile app features a catalogue of more than 600,000 stars on a zoomable map that can also be used as a viewfinder and star or satellite identifier by pointing your phone up at the night sky. Users can display asterisms and constellations from different cultures, as well as search for artificial satellites.

Get a fully featured planetarium app in your iOS or Android with Stellarium app. Stellarium offers you a realistic view of the night skies that lets you easily see the stars, constellations and satellites.

The app gives you a realistic view just like what you see with your naked eye or with telescopes. It also offers you to easily identify the stars and constellations, their positions in the sky and accurately tells you their positions in a given time and day. The app has a catalog of more than 600,000 stars that you can see in real-time on a skymap which you can also zoom-in/out and most importantly, the 3D rendering of the major solar system, planets and their satellites.
