About this app

Stellarium Mobile - Star Map is a planetarium app that shows exactly what you see when you look up at the stars.

Identify stars, constellations, planets, comets, satellites (such as the ISS), and other deep sky objects in real time in the sky above you in just a few seconds, just by pointing the phone at the sky!

This astronomy application has an easy to use and minimalist user interface, that makes it one of the best astronomical applications for adults and children who want to explore the night sky.

Stellarium Mobile features:

★ View an accurate night sky simulation of stars and planets for any date, time and location.

★ Dive in a collection of many stars, nebulas, galaxies, star clusters and other deep sky objects.

★ Zoom on realistic Milky Way and Deep Sky Objects images.

★ Discover how people living in other regions of the planet see the stars by selecting the shapes and illustrations of the constellations for many sky cultures.

★ Track artificial satellites, including the International Space Station.

★ Simulate landscape and atmosphere with realistic sunrise, sunset and atmosphere refraction.

★ Discover 3D rendering of the major solar system planets and their satellites.

★ Observe the sky in night mode (red) to preserve your eyes adaptation to darkness.

Stellarium Mobile contains in-app purchases allowing to upgrade to Stellarium Plus. With this upgrade, the app will display objects as faint as magnitude 22 (versus magnitude 8 in the base version) and enable advanced observing features.

Stellarium Plus features (unlocked with in-app purchase):

★ Reach the limit of knowledge by diving in a massive collection of stars, nebulas, galaxies, star clusters and other deep sky objects:
  • All known stars: Gaia DR2 catalog of over 1.69 billion stars
  • All known planets, natural satellites and comets, and many other minor solar system objects (10k asteroids)
  • Most known deep sky objects: a combined catalog of over 2 million nebulas and galaxies

★ Zoom almost without limits on high resolution images of deep sky objects or planetary surfaces.

★ Observe in the field, even without internet connection, with a "reduced" set of data: 2 million stars, 2 million Deep Sky Objects, 10k asteroids.

★ Control your telescope through Bluetooth or WIFI: drive any GOTO telescope compatible with NexStar, SynScan or LX200 protocols.

★ Prepare your observing sessions using the advanced observation tools, to predict a celestial object observability and transit times.

Stellarium Mobile - Star Map is made by the original creator of Stellarium, the well known open source planetarium and one of the best astronomy applications on Desktop PC.

Even though this doesn't have all the features of the desktop version, this is still plenty useful on it's own; and by buying you are helping support the desktop app, which is totally free! This is the price to pay for good open source software, and that is more than reasonable. One issue; sensor-look turns on too easily when you have manually moved to an object and want to read without holding the phone in the air...an onscreen button to lock the view, or similar, would be stellar ;)

Simply awesome. This app inspired me to buy a telescope. I also love seeing random objects flying through the sky and being able to look and find out its some rocket body fron some previous launch or, hey its the International Space Station! Not sure how expansive their database is on that, but I've yet to have it not be able to tell me what the object was. Granted, it's been like 3 times. But 3 for 3 is pretty good.

Works well, but light pollution settings are slightly off. Really like all the features and works good for finding things like the ISS, I got to watch it pass over me. Could also add an "Always show" list so you can always see certain objects you put on the list. Edit: Found some what I believe to be graphical glitches, which consists of random blue/orange lines and dots, don't know what caused them but I have screenshots

Hi. Thank you very much for the detailed feedback. We will take these into consideration for future updates. These might be optical artifacts in the source images we used for the background sky. We hope to clean these up at some point so please keep updated. In any case, feel free to send us screenshot at help@stellarium-labs.com so we can check.

What's new

This update brings the following improvements:

- new Field of View Simulator: define your collection of astronomical equipment (telescopes, binoculars, eyepieces etc..), simulate their Field of View in the sky, quickly switch between them [PLUS].
- many bug fixes and translation improvements

We are happy to hear from you and get your feedback!
