Google Skymap: Great for Students

Google Sky Map

  

Learn more about the stars and constellations with this nifty little educational tool, even if cloud cover limits visibility. Look up into the endless void through an Android phone or tablet, and the app will load a clear star map based on the area viewed. Google Sky Map uses an Android device’s built-in GPS receiver and magnetometer (if available) to determine where the user is pointing. Sky Map also helps users locate specific extraterrestrial bodies, including nearby planets like Mars and Venus.
