Your New Guide to the Night Sky
Sky Tonight by Star Walk is a brand new powerful stargazing guide. We created this easy-to-use and informative app, drawing on a decade of experience with Star Walk 2 and recognizing the needs and wants of stargazers all over the world. That's why using Sky Tonight is the easiest and most convenient way to explore the sky!

The app concentrates on what you can see, bringing the bright stars and planets into sharp focus with lots of information about their history, lore, and the times they'll rise over the horizon over the next month. It even tips you off about events such as conjunctions and occultations. In brief, it's one of the best stargazing apps currently available.
Sky Tonight is nicely designed while also providing a lot of great information. It includes augmented reality of the constellations but also the latest news in astronomy, a calendar of celestial events (including a daily stargazing index and weather), and a list of objects that are visible tonight (i.e. planets, constellations, stars) through binoculars, a telescope or using the naked eye.
Another very interesting aspect of this app is the Visible Tonight section, which will tell you what celestial objects you can see tonight. In addition, it will also indicate the level of visibility based on factors such as cloud coverage and light pollution.
