App Description

SkySafari 5 Pro is the ultimate astronomy app. It has the largest database of any astronomy app, includes every solar system object ever discovered and offers flawless telescope control. Here's what's new in this version:

1) Tonight at a Glance: the Sun, Moon, Planets, ISS, and Iridium flares in one handy view!

2) Notifications when the ISS will pass overhead, when Iridium satellites flare, and more!

3) Completely new sounds, and a new look to the sky and horizon.

4) Object lists in the Search menu now show thumbnail images. New options in Advanced Search.

5) Updated object descriptions. Every object now has a description!

6) iCloud sync for your settings and observing lists! Change them on one device, and synchronize your changes across all your Mac and iOS devices!

7) An on-line repository of observing lists from experienced amateur astronomers. A "tour mode" that guides you through objects in each list!

8) An improved deep sky database with Abell and Hickson galaxy clusters, and globular clusters in M 31.

9) Galaxy View shows the position of deep sky objects in our Milky Way!

10) A handy Digitized Sky Survey viewer that lets you download images from the DSS!

11) Improved multi-star alignment for telescopes with digital setting circles. Add Barlows and Focal Reducers to your equipment list!

12) Improved 3D OpenGL renderings of the ISS, HST, Ceres, Vesta, Pluto, Charon, and many other solar system objects and spacecraft.
