How to Set the Time and Date?

~1 min

Star Walk 2 allows you not only to see the sky in real time but also to travel in time and see the sky map at any date and time in the past or future. This feature of the app is called ‘Time Machine’. Here’s how it works.

Step 1. To set the time and date, tap the clock icon (Time Machine) in the upper right corner of the screen and change the year, month, day, hour and minute using the slider bar.

Step 2. To set the time and date without scrolling, tap and hold the Time Machine icon and set the parameters manually in the extended panel.

Step 3. Drag the time slider in the right side of the screen up or down with your finger and the parameters will start changing accordingly.

Enjoy the sky of different periods, and tap the ‘Now’ button (to the left of the year) if you want to return to the current time and date.

Happy stargazing!
