Vito Technology has announced the release of their award-winning stargazing app Star Walk for Windows Phone. Star Walk is an educational augmented reality app for spotting over 200,000 stars, planets, constellations, satellites and galaxies in the night sky. The Windows Phone version includes everything one needs to navigate through the night sky, learn about any object, travel in time to a specific date and much more.
Star Walk is a handy astronomy guide that shows celestial objects (stars, constellations, satellites, etc.) in the exact positions on the sky above, 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 main and the most impressive feature of the app is called Star Spotter. It turns on automatically when one hold the device over their head towards the sky and starts following their motions as they pan around. The image on the device will correspond the actual star map for given location. If the device has a back-facing camera, it can be used in the Augmented Reality mode to overlay actual sky images with Star Walk map.
Having looked around, one might want to learn more information on something they find interesting. Just tap the object and an (i) will appear next to it’s name. Star Walk information database was built in collaboration with European Space Agency (ESA) to provide users with most accurate data and stunning pictures.
