    Google Sky Map
    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.
    
    With a compass and an accelerometer, the application determines the exact 
    location that your phone is facing and shows you the stars that are visible.
    
    
    Let's say you want to identify the brightest star over the horizon, you just 
    point the phone in that direction and "Venus" would pop up on your screen.
    
    According to Google, the app doesn't need a line of sight to find the stars 
    and planets. Even on a cloudy night, it will show you the stars up in the 
    night sky.
