Starlight – Mobile Planetarium

Screen Shot 2013-10-07 at 8.04.53 AMMake the solar system come alive for your child by the use of this app!  It uses the device’s internal navigation system to display which constellations, stars, and other parts of the solar system are currently in the sky above (the Location service must be on when using an Apple device).  It also lists the space objects that are currently below the horizon where you are.

Tapping a constellation, star, or other part of the solar system brings up a brief informative paragraph to read and an accompanying picture.

Note that there’s an in-app option to purchase the Planetary Sounds Pack to access sounds captured by several space crafts.
