If you like astronomy and you enjoy viewing the stars in the sky, this Google Sky Map application shouldn't be missing from your phone.
What can Sky Map do?
The greatest feature presented by Google Sky Map is that it offers you the possibility to locate and indicate constellations of stars, planets and galaxies by simply focusing your phone towards the sky. You will be able to increase or reduce the zoom and activate the constellation, planet or grid templates to choose which objects you want to view. It will also allow you to find the situation of heavenly bodies based on your location on Earth, with the possibility to type in the name of the star or planet to make the application guide you directly towards it.
The features that Google Sky Map is capable of offering are possible thanks to the use of your phone's GPS and compass and not the camera as you would think. It is capable of working at any time of the day and allows you to view more than 1,000 different stars, with the possibility to search for them by constellation or individually.
Download Google Sky Maps for Android and enjoy one of the most interesting astronomy-related applications available for smartphones.
