SkySafari 5 | SkyWeek



    Simulation Curriculum and the editors of Sky & Telescope magazine have collaborated to bring you SkyWeek - the interactive mobile version of S&T's super-popular "This Week's Sky at a Glance" web page - as an integrated feature in SkySafari for iOS and Android! "This Week's Sky at a Glance" has been Sky & Telescope's most popular online offering for 21 years, and SkyWeek gives you a day-by-day calendar of events to observe in the changing night sky.

    SkyWeek describes all major sky events: eclipses, conjunctions, good meteor showers - miss nothing! Whether you're a newbie skywatcher or an experienced amateur astronomer, SkyWeek will become your handy, everyday guide to what's up.

    Tap the SkyWeek icon in SkySafari's toolbar to view a page listing the week's current events. Tap the VIEW icon next to a particular event to view a custom sky map which illustrates the event. Sky maps that are automatically set for your location. And starting from the sky scene that's displayed, you can pan around the heavens, change the scene to other times and dates, and zoom in or out.

    SkyWeek's daily event listing also includes links to more info. Some content on Sky & Telescope's web site may require a user account login and password.
