Use augmented reality to walk around the entire solar system, manipulating time and space with your fingertips!  Walk up to the planets and see them in great detail, view their moons and surrounding satellites.  Even see current space missions in our Solar System!  Not only can you explore from space, with our new Grand Orrery you’re able to actually land on the planets and view the sky from Mars or even Jupiters moons for instance!

Just drop a pin on the world map, and Night Sky will generate a Sky Tour for that location and save it into My Tours for quick and easy access.
