SkyMap is an amazing planetarium for your windows phone. It enables you to point your phone at the sky and see what stars, constellations, planets or deep space objects are out there in real time.
SkyMap shows the sky in 3D, like you see it at night time exposing a collection of over 110000 stars.
It’s very easy to use for any viewpoint, time and location on Earth: it determines your location automatically, supports pinch to zoom for more details and provides a highly customizable map.

    "SkyMap" is truly a 5 star "App." Whether you're an experienced astronomer working at one of NASA's gigantic telescopes. Or you're simply one of the millions of amateur astronomers, with a telescope set up in the back yard. This "app" was made for everyone to enjoy (and no, u don't need an advanced degree in astrophysics to have fun with it.) For the novice astronomer it not only has all the planets in our solar system, it also has all of the constellations, in remarkably beautiful artistic impressions. For the more experienced astronomer their are plenty of stars to investigate, nearly all of which are hundreds if not thousands of light-years away from our solar system. Their is even a band of a piece of the Milky Way, which is absolutely beautiful, & no doubt thousands of light years across. If you want an "app" on your mobile device that you'll never get tired of, "SkyMap" is want you want. I mean who doesn't love ❤ to look at the stars which make up our universe. ~F~🌌 🌌

    My mom had a star finder when she was a kid. This is that for a new generation. Fun constellations and org space goodies easily
