Star Walk 2

When you open up the Star Walk 2 app, you are immediately presented with the sky as it is right now. Constellations appear to be reflected on the still surface of the lake, which is set against a picturesque backdrop overlooking a placid lake. In any direction you move your phone, the sky’s features will be reflected on the screen.

You also have the option to speed up time, watching how a constellation or planet will move across the night sky as the hours pass. This is another way to play with time. This allows you to track what you should be looking for at different times in the night, which is useful if you later decide to switch to using the best telescopes(opens in new tab) or the best binoculars(opens in new tab) for stargazing.

A camera icon can be found in the upper right-hand corner of the app, and tapping on it toggles the app into its augmented reality mode very quickly. The app uses the camera on your phone to superimpose images of constellations, planets, and satellites onto the view of the night sky that you have captured.

It is easy to make changes to the notifications and decide how you would like to view the night sky thanks to the menu that is located in the bottom right-hand corner of the home screen. There is also a section within the menu dedicated to sky news, which discusses topics such as the distinction between twilight and dusk, as well as upcoming events such as meteor showers. The “visible tonight” tab displays well-known celestial planets and constellations and indicates whether or not they will be visible in the sky tonight, as well as when and where they can be seen.


Star Walk 2 app serves as a starguide, skymap, and night-sky reference for astronomers of all experience levels. The app was designed to make its use as easy, intuitive, and informative as is humanly possible. Users will be able to locate constellations, stars, planets, and satellites in the night sky. As well as learn more about each of these celestial bodies.

Vito Technology has released the most recent version of their mobile app for stargazing called Star Walk 2. The app has a modern appearance and makes it simple to make customizations. Making it a good choice for novice stargazers as well as experienced stargazers. Who are looking for an all-encompassing app.

Star Walk 2 provides users with an augmented reality overlay. That can be viewed through the camera on their device to learn about the stars, constellations, and planets. As well as track satellites. Some stargazing apps are able to link to your telescope. But Star Walk 2 does not include this feature. Additionally, some stargazers may feel that the free version is lacking elements. Such as tracking of extended solar system objects and the International Space Station.

Any student who has an interest in the night sky would benefit from using the free version of Star Walk 2. Which is offered on both iOS and Android. It is a free download. But it does display advertisements. If you pay one price, however, you can remove the advertisements and unlock the full content.


Setting up the Star Walk 2 App

It won’t take you long to get Star Walk 2 up and running on your mobile device or iPad. The primary interface of the application includes a number of features and icons. All of which the user can become familiar with by swiping through an introductory menu. After that, users must either manually enter their coordinates or set their location. Within the app for it to accurately reflect the night sky.

The menu icon can be found in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen. Here, users can indicate how they would like the constellations to appear. As well as customize the notifications that they would like to receive. You can also customize other settings. Such as whether to use kilometers or miles and whether to use Celsius or Fahrenheit.

In addition, the menu comes with a 24-page manual. That provides a comprehensive analysis of all of Star Walk 2’s features, in addition to a frequently asked questions and a glossary section. Users also have the option to return to the beginning of the app’s tour at any time during their use of it. It is a lot easier to navigate than fully developed apps such as SkySafari 6. But it does not offer as many features as the more developed apps do.
