Google SkyMap app shows you the stars
Have you ever seen a star in the night sky and wondered what it is? Then you'll probably find that Google SkyMap app is fantastic!
One need not even be interested in astrology to be fascinated by the night sky. A really clear night awakens astonishment of almost everyone. We stand there and look upward while the mind is spinning around a lot of odd questions like 'is there life out there in space "," was the starry heavens is my star sign "and" what is called the star ".
All questions is certainly not the app Google SkyMap answer (yet anyway), but it actually gives you answers to a surprising number of them. Align your phone just up against the part of the sky you are interested to see a picture of the starry sky where the star constellations and planets are marked. Really fun to spin around and see which stars right now is just above you at this very moment. You can also search for planets in the night sky and obtain information on the planet, distance, etc..
This is really an obvious (and slightly addictive) app for all, especially if you are interested in astrology.
