The latest update to Star Walk 2 brings a new gallery for constellations, new and improved models for some satellites, and bug fixes.
Most notably, the update introduces a galaxy of additional content accessible through a new “Planets” info pack, which features the following:
- 3D models of the inner structure of the planets – zoom-in, zoom-out, spin and explore the layers
- Maps of planets’ features – learn the names of the mountains, volcanos of Venus, craters on Moon
- Read exclusive stories of exploratory missions and see the spacecraft models, objectives and results, real-time positions of active orbiting spacecrafts and landing sites of the missions
- High-resolution maps of Venus, and the Moon.
The Planets info pack is available via a $0.99 in-app purchase or as part of the $2.99 all-in-one in-app purchase.

In keeping with the spirit of the holiday season, the latest update to Star Walk 2 also lets you track Santa as he makes his way around the world, across the sky.
Star Walk 2 was updated a couple of weeks ago with special content about Mars, aka the red planet, as part of Apple’s recently concluded Apps for (RED) anti-AIDS charity initiative on the App Store.
