Night Sky is a powerful AR personal planetarium.

Quickly identify stars, planets, constellations and satellites above by simply holding your iPhone, iPad or Apple Watch to the Night Sky! This is all done magically. Whether you’re looking for a constellation or the International Space Station, let Night Sky direct you to it, then explore the object in AR!


– SKY TAGS – Make Night Sky yours, by adding personal Sky Tags to the map! Pin Sky Tags to objects in the sky to save for future reference, and share them via iMessage so others can find them! Sky Tags can be categorized, and are completely personal to you. Maybe you want to tag a star as a memorial to someone, or tag something you’d like to observe later that night. You can even add Astrophotography photos and observation notes to your Sky Tags!

– CONNECTED STARGAZING (+ Feature) – Connected Stargazing is a revolutionary new feature that utilizes SharePlay in iOS 15.1, allowing you to stargaze with others when you are apart! Start a FaceTime Audio call with those who you would like to stargaze with, then create a session by adding objects for everyone to find in the sky!

– SPATIAL AUDIO OBJECT NAVIGATION – Using AirPods Pro or AirPods Max, search for an object when automatic sky tracking is on, and Night Sky will make the star, planet or constellation ‘chirp’ in the 360° soundscape, assisting you to navigate to the object with sound!

– AR SKY WINDOW – Erase the ceiling of your bedroom, lounge or classroom with AR! Night Sky intelligently detects the ceiling or other flat surface in a room, and can make it magically disappear to reveal the sky behind it!

– BILLIONS OF STARS! (+ Feature) – Space is vast, so Night Sky has been hyper charged with over 1.7 BILLION STARS streamed from the cloud! With a new super deep zoom (greater than 10X before), prepare to delve deeper into space than you ever imagined!

Welcome to Night Sky 12!

Night Sky 12 is a huge update bringing some exciting new features and enhancements for iOS 17!

+ LIVE SKY EVENTS – Never miss Live Sky Events again with Night Sky! A new indicator will appear in the bottom right of the Sky View whenever there is an interesting Live Sky Event such as a meteor shower or planetary conjunction for instance. The Live Event will also be highlighted in the Sky View and will only appear when the event is Live, so you’ll immediately know the most exciting celestial wonders to view as soon as you launch Night Sky!

+ STANDBY MODE SUPPORT (iOS 17 required) – Night Sky supports Standby Mode support in iOS 17 by displaying objects rising in the sky. Ready to let you know whats happening above if you wake up in the middle of the night.

+ HIGH RESOLUTION LIGHT SPECTRUMS – We’ve improved the resolution of all light spectrum arrays in Night Sky 12. See things you can’t see with your eyes using the light spectrum filters available to change directly from the Sky View.

+ USER TOURS (Night Sky+ only) – Anyone can now make their own custom sky tour. Create a list of objects with your own images, and have Night Sky direct you to the objects in a sequenced tour. You can then share this tour with family and friends!

+ COMMON NAMES – Night Sky now recognises commonly used terms such as ‘the big dipper’ and ‘the plough’. When a user searches for commonly used names, Night Sky will display the correct objects in the search results.
