    "Google Sky Map lets users view a labeled map of the sky on smart phones 
    powered by Google's Android operating system.
    Using GPS technology, a date clock and a compass, it helps users identify and 
    locate all the stellar spectacles in the sky."
    
    Well isn't that just freaking amazing. For my next trick, I will predict the 
    winning lottery numbers, and you will all get a share.
    
    Ahem. For the record, I swear on a stack of Bowditches that I had no prior 
    knowledge of this Google smart phone product. I suppose it's an obvious 
    application. :-) But it does reiterate my belief that we have a great 
    opportunity to advance celestial navigation education by taking advantage of 
    this technology.

    PS: I do actually have a stack of Bowditches. They would be about four feet high stacked vertically.
