"SkySafari 6 Pro quit unexpectedly" error message on launch

I’ve just upgraded my Macbook to High Sierra Mac OS 10.13.6. Sky Safari doesn’t run any more. When I upgraded Sky Safari to the latest version in the App Store (v.6.7 I think) it stopped running on Yosemite, and doesn’t run on High Sierra either. On launching it I get an error message: "SkySafari 6 Pro quit unexpectedly"

I have noticed that the latest version of SkySafari 6 Plus for MacOS is 64 bit – does this explain why it doesn’t run on my 32 bit MacBook Air ?

How do I install a version of the Mac OS application that will continue to run on my 32bit machine.

Thanks, Angelo

    I am having the same problem with my ipad.  I do not get an error message, just reverts back the home ipad screen.  In settings I tried to reinstall but it said the software was not compatable with the newest ipad update.  I cannot seem to get a place to report this problem.  If it is indeed due to a software update on the part of apple, I would think there would be others with the same problem.
