Now that the 2017 Solar Eclipse has come and gone, you might think things are quieting down in the sky. But nothing could be further from the truth. Whenever you look up, there’s always something going on – you just have to know what to look for.The problem is, where do you start? With so many stars in the sky, how can you tell what you’re even looking at?This app called Sky Map can turn you into an astronomer in seconds. Just pull the app up, point your phone at the sky, and it will point out all of the constellations! The app also highlights planets and other celestial objects. In fact, some refer to this app as a “planetarium for your Android device.”Another neat thing that Sky Map can do is offer you a glimpse at the past, and even a sneak peek into the future. If you’re curious about how a particular section of the sky looked before, or what it will look like down the road, just enter the date and time you’d like to see.It does all of this by using augmented reality to display information over the images seen through your phone’s camera lens.People seem to love it, too. Sky Map has a 4.5 rating in Google Play, and there are tons of comments like this one: “I love this app, there’s [sic] so many features that it continues to excite me!”Sky Map is a free download for Android users in the Google Play store. Currently, there is no version available for Apple users.
