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 back and forth in time and see the sky map at any date and time in the past or future. This feature of the app is called the “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 a year, month, day, hour and minute with the slider bar.

Step 2. Drag the time slider on the right side of the screen up or down with your finger, and the parameters will start changing accordingly.

Step 3. To set the time and date manually, without scrolling, tap and hold the Time Machine icon and set the parameters manually in the extended panel.

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!
