The invention of smartphones had indeed changed the way we look at our world. We shop for clothes, order takeout, read books, listen to music and communicate all differently than we did the better part of the last century. With the SkyView® Lite app, now we even look at the sky differently. This great app is simply amazing at pointing out stars, planets, constellations and even satellites directly above your head. It is super cool, extraordinarily convenient, and FREE! So, tonight go outside with the kids as the night sky turns dark and everything starts to shine in the galaxy. Then, simply point your smartphone SkyView® Lite app at the sky and watch what you see. The app does the brilliant work of connecting all the dots and naming them while giving fascinating facts about each. It is a fantastic educational app for the kids and parents alike! Ages 4 and up.

Here are all the cool app features:

  • Simple: Point your device at the sky to identify galaxies, stars, constellations and satellites (including the ISS and Hubble) passing overhead at your location.
