Favorite app of the minute

Star Walk
Cost: $2.99.
A bit pricey in the app world,
But well worth it. Especially when compared to other star gazing apps.

Why: I've always looked forward to the night. Especially now, when I
get home from work, I look up in the sky and can see actual stars, but
can never really remember formations.

Great for: Geo tagged star gazing. Uses your location to help you
spot the constellations above you.

Extras: right out of the gate on the opening screen you get, sun up,
sun down, elevation, 5days of the lunar cycle and the ability to move
ahead dates. Uses really nice shilloutes over the stars to illustrate
the name of the constellation. Really nice zooming and rotation.
