Star Walk for iPad – the popular and award-winning astronomy app – has had a recent update, to Version 5.3.

The headline change in this update is the addition of a new database:

an extensive database of currently functioning artificial Earth satellites (all 8000 of them!) with their exact positions over the ground.

The database covers satellites in these categories:

– Special-Interest
– Weather & Earth Resources
– Communications
– Navigation
– Scientific
– Miscellaneous

Once again, an already excellent app continues to provide worthwhile updates – always good to see.

Here’s an App Store link for Star Walk for iPad; it’s priced at $4.99.
