Sky Map-Ponder the Mystery of the Night Sky

This is a shameless plug for the Google Sky Map app. If you have an android phone, download this one immediately. Hold your phone up at the night sky and it tells you exactly what stars or constellation you’re looking at. You can search for constellations, specific stars, planets, or meteor shower. It will make an astronomer out of you.

  1. You unquestionably put a new twist on a subject that’s been written about for years. Amazing stuff, just great! I enjoy reading a post that will make people think, thanks and we want more! Added to FeedBurner also.

  2. I could have used this in New Zealand. When I was in Whangarei in the north I was staying at a remote farm and when I would step out at night the night sky was amazingly brilliant. I couldn’t identify anything.
