Surfing in nature has another advantage besides clean air and beautiful scenery: watching the beautiful night sky. If you are lucky enough to spend your vacation in areas without light pollution, be sure to take the opportunity to sit and watch the beautiful sky and starry night.
Fortunately, there are apps that tell you every single thing that falls on your head, and SkySafari, which we are introducing today, is one of the best. This AR-based astronomy and astronomy app creates a live map of the night sky so you know exactly what you’re staring at by holding your phone up; A star, a planet, a galaxy or a mythical constellation.
SkySafari is based on augmented reality. Just give it access to its geographical location and camera to get the exact position of the stars and planets above your head, whether it is day or night, by taking the phone to the sky. The app beautifully combines a virtual map of the sky with your camera image to see exactly what’s happening above your head.
But what good is it if you just know that the Parvin cluster is above your head or a galaxy millions of light-years away without information? That’s why the creators of SkySafari have included valuable information about all celestial bodies in the application. You can read this valuable information by pressing the i button next to each star or planet. The same is true of constellations.
SkySafari is also a good reference for monitoring cosmic events. Meteor showers, the passing of a comet, and events such as eclipses can be animated in this app. There is also a feature that allows you to move back and forth in time, which can be very interesting and amazing.
But other features of this application include images and descriptions of NASA missions, complete information about the International Space Station, monitoring of more than 120,000 stars and voice search among celestial bodies, which make SkySafari a very powerful application.
SkySafari – Astronomy App Apart from these two other versions, it is also called SkySafari 6 Plus and SkySafari 6 Pro, which provide much more specialized capabilities to astronomy enthusiasts, although both are paid. However, the Mad and Unlock versions of these two versions can be found by searching the Persian web.
