Alexandria, VA (PRWEB) August 31, 2012
Vito Technology is proud to announce a major upgrade to its Star Walk app - the augmented reality app for spotting over 200,000 stars, planets, constellations, satellites and galaxies in the night sky. The new version has been released for Back to School season and includes amazing visual effects of sunset and sunrise, new Info for objects, stunning galleries of astronomy pictures from ESO and ESA, and easy sharing options.
Star Walk is a handy astronomy guide that shows celestial objects (stars, constellations, satellites, etc.) in the exact positions on the sky above you, providing comprehensive information about them. It helps anyone even remotely interested in astronomy find their way across the sky, determine where to look for any chosen object, rewind or fast-forward time to see how celestial bodies move. It inspires curiosity about the Universe and helps understand amazing cosmic phenomena.
The visible and invisible parts of the sky are divided with colors that change in accordance with the time of the day. For the day time the sky is blue and bright, for the night time it is dark blue and black. Due to the improved visual effects the sunset and sunrise on a device look very realistic with flares and rays across the sky. To view it one can choose the Sun and fast forward the Time Machine on the right side bar or meet a sunset with Star Walk app.
To make the adventure to outer Space even more educational Vito Technology team added new experience to the object Info. The new Info window features numerous pictures of the object, “Did you Know?” facts, figures about sizes and distances, detailed descriptions and Wikipedia articles.
