|"Listen to me? A crazy old rogue who sits looking at the moon? No, you must speak to them. More than anything they need a leader to follow, and you can walk that path more easily than I."|

Skywatcher, born as Sky, was the final descendant of ancient SkyClan. Despite the former Clan's disbandment, Sky admired his mother Lowbranch's tales of the cats that once lived in the gorge, and he remained living there as a loner until meeting Firestar and Sandstorm, ThunderClan cats on a quest to rebuild SkyClan. Sky joined the revived Clan, advising Firestar until his death, and further delivering the Kin of your Kin prophecy.

- In Firestar's Quest, he is first introduced as Moony by Boris and Cherry, called so because of his habitual staring at the moon. However, he is revealed to be named Sky, keeping vigil in the gorge every full moon for the forgotten SkyClan, of which he is descended. Firestar insists to Sky that the Clan of his ancestors can be revived, though the old cat has little faith in him. However, Firestar is not dissuaded, and convinces Sky to help him create a modern SkyClan, granting him the name Skywatcher. Skywatcher thanks Firestar for saving SkyClan and warns him of his descendants having the power of the stars in their paws. He dies that night, and goes to StarClan. Later, he gives Leafstar a life for hope.
- In SkyClan's Destiny, Leafstar often has visions of the deceased SkyClan elder. She seeks his advice on whether SkyClan was in the right to attack Shrewtooth's cruel Twoleg, and later on whether SkyClan should have daylight warriors. Skywatcher clashes with Swallowflight, who accuses SkyClan of not being a true Clan due to having kittypet warriors.
- In Ravenpaw's Farewell, Skywatcher and Cloudstar visit Ravenpaw in a dream. Skywatcher encourages him that Bella and Riley will find their place in SkyClan in time.
- Skywatcher is a big, tall, dark gray tom. He has thick, scarred, matted fur, a white-flecked muzzle, and huge, pale blue eyes.
- Skywatcher might get his own story.
- He was also known as Moony by the kittypets Boris and Cherry.
- He has been mistakenly mentioned with green eyes.
