Sky Map

Sky Map to explore the skies

Point your phone at the sky, and Sky Map will show the stars, planets, constellations, and more to help you identify the celestial objects in view. You can also browse the skies in manual mode.

The app may not be able to detect your location very well if you are not using the non-Free Network Location service. It could be best to enter coordinates rather than entering a town or using GPS.

The app has been built without the non-free Google Analytics library.

Packages

Although APK downloads are available below to give you the choice, you should be aware that by installing that way you will not receive update notifications and it's a less secure way to download. We recommend that you install the F-Droid client and use that.
