Re: Astronomy App.


ahhhhh...yes, looking up is fab, especially on a crystal clear night with no light glare etc...but can you recognise/name all the stars/constellations you see??
I'm sure an appropriate app will display the names etc.....at least methinks it should.

'ave a great weekend

Yep Dave, that's what Google Sky does for you.
It also let's you search for any one of them and gives you a direction finder arrow pointing to where it is and then a circle locator once you are "looking" at it.
