If you can't see the compass icon in the upper left corner of the Star Walk 2 main screen, it means that your device is not equipped with digital compass(magnetometer) that is required for the Star Spotter (the feature that allows you to track the sky) to be activated. Otherwise the app works as advertised on your device. You can use Star Walk and track the sky and observe stars, satellites, constellations in their proper place for your current location.

I'm tracking a satellite(comet) but its trajectory is not accurate
Please make sure that you have a persistent Internet connection established on your device while tracking satellites(comets). Please note that satellites(comets) are available only for real tracking, the position is determined for current date and time.
A constellation image is shown wrong (reversed etc.)
Your opinion is greatly appreciated.If you study ancient star atlases, you will notice that different astronomers throughout centuries pictured constellations differently. For instance, Cancer was depicted as a crab as well as a lobster, and even when you start digging for Homer's original text of the corresponding myth, there is still room for either one. When you think of it, there is no correct way to picture something that does not exist, these are all products of people's imagination. The important thing is that the stars are in correct places and constellations are formed by officially recognized star groupings. There are no factual mistakes in the app, but we certainly do not mind artistic interpretation where it is appropriate.
Where can I find the Earth in the sky?
Star Walk 2 is about observation the sky from the Earth, you can not see an object in the sky when you are at the object.
