Is that the North Star, a planet…or just a plane?

Would love to identify the constellations, but don’t know where to start?

The Planets is an interactive 3D guide to the sky for aspiring astronomers. Hold your mobile device up to the sky and see the map of the stars and planets. As you turn, the map view turns too.

Planets includes a 2D view, 3D view with constellations, visibility times and rotating images of individual planets.

Download Planets and have a tiny planetarium in your pocket!

Free for iOS and Android.
