As with NightSky3, you will be able to view 2.5 million stars from our stellar database. However, our new architecture means that you will not be limited to viewing a few hundred at a time.

Next Time...

Day Time. NightSky4 isn't all about the night sky. In the distant future you'll see clouds and rainbows. But in the "vanilla" version, you'll get blue skies in the middle of the day and sunset and sunrise effects at dusk and dawn.
