Stargazing: using Sky Map on your Android phone: video

Here’s a short video from one of the developers of Sky Map, the free app for Android that allows you to explore the night-sky above you, or hunt for a particular star.

You can download the app itself here. Bring it to our Stargazing event on Saturday 19 January and explore for yourself!
