Study the constellations with Star Chart Android app

Feb 22, 2011

If you have a passion for gazing into the night sky at the constellations, the Star Chart Android app is for you. Whether you’re in a corn field in Indiana or resting on the couch in your New York City condo, simply aim your Android phone at the sky, and admire the stars, planets and constellations. Point your phone down to see what the stars look like to folks on the other side of the world.

Using the GPS technology inside your phone, this star charting app tells you exactly what you’re looking at in the night or daytime sky, no matter where you are. Have you ever stared into the night sky at a particularly bright star, and wondered what it was? Now you can point your Android phone at the star to identify it. The app will also tell you if the bright spot in the sky you are so fond of is may not even be a star at all, it might be a planet.
