SkyORB is more than a simple star map, it's a collection of 6 tools including a 3D star map, 3D planetarium, ephemeris, search engine, sun clock and more.

It features a 3D interface, with OpenGL ES 1.1 and OpenGL 2.0 support, a search engine, a large catalog of stars (Hyparcos), deep objects (NGC/IC 2000) planets, current satellite (including current space shuttle missions) (MPC) and let you choose see the actual sky from any point on Earth.

SkyORB allows you to fine tune your observation location (and orientation with digital compass if available) with automatic detection from GPS (or entering the longitude, latitude and altitude). Information like sunset and sunrise are computed as well as moonrise and moonset and full / new moon dates.

The sky map is drawn with realtime precession. You can rotate freely and in realtime in 360 degrees at 60 frames per second. Moon and other planets are rendered in real 3D objects with different level of details using state of the art 3D effects for the iPhone and iPad.

SkyORB is *free* of charge and you can upgrade to the premium version directly from the application.
