About & Pics
Sky Above is a star gazing app that allows you to view where in the sky stars, constellations, planets and satellites are above you in the sky.

Best of all, you can see the real sky in the app too using your device's camera!
Just hold your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch up to the sky and all will be revealed to you.
