If you still don’t have a star gazing app on your smartphone, we have a couple of free suggestions for you. 

These apps are helpful in identifying constellations as well as planets and in some cases, use augmented reality to assist you in seeing why a constellation is named what it is. 

iPhone smartphone users should checkout ‘Star Chart’ which includes the augmented reality views and is free for the basic options. If you really want to dive in, you can purchase upgrades to extend your learning. 

Android smartphone users can checkout ‘Sky Map’ which is free and works using the same process of holding the phone up to the sky to identify or track down anything you see in the night sky. 

These apps are a great way to get kids interested in the amazing light show that goes on just about every night but so many of us take for granted.
