Enter your location or acquire your coordinates with GPS and enjoy a precisely simulated starry sky in all its glory, including twinkling stars and the band of the Milky Way.

Alongside numerous celestial objects, SmartStellar provides realistic views of the planets, constellation figures, solar and lunar eclipses, etc.
