Have you ever stood under the night’s sky and asked yourself: “What are all those stars up there?” Is there anybody who can tell you? The answer is within reach: Universe2go.
In combination with the accompanying Smartphone App this newly developed star viewer shows the stars with a wealth of information and fantastic images.
