I almost choked when a buddy whipped out his iPhone and showed me the planetarium app, I don't remember what it was called.

He waved the cell phone around the sky and it kept the stars aligned in it to a tee.

Handy little gadget when you're trying to figure out what "that" is over there!

Good article, Thank you.

Tom,

Great little article. Quite the teaser, though. You've got me waiting on the edge of my seat for Part 2. I was unaware of Moon Globe. No more. Wow! Keep up the good iWork, friend.

I was a Stellarium user from way back when, and I found the app in the App Store last yeas after buying my iPod touch. It is a great app, but does not appear to be available in the App Store for US customers. Hopefully, that changes in the future. It's excellent for an observing aid.

Here is what on my iPhone4:
APOD-Astronomy Picture of the Day
ESA-European Space Agency
Exoplanet-best app to keep up on current discoveries
Gas Giants-great tracker for the moons of Jupiter and Saturn
NASA
Moon Atlas- A awesome Moon mapping app, a lil pricey
Mars Atlas- again awesome but a little pricey
Stellarium
Sky Week Plus- Great app from S&T, only negative is some things require a paid subscription.

Hope this helps!
