Went down into the moon-bright backyard with my iPhone and checked out the stars with Starmap. Oh, so that was Jupiter, not Venus. And what's this constellation called again? Right, Boötes, the Herdsman. And what's this brightish star next to Boötes? Aha, it's called Alphecca, and is part of the Corona Borealis, the Northern Crown.
Have I told you lately how much in love I am with my iPhone? Starmap is one of my favorite apps. Check out how cool it is. And that movie doesn't even show one of the most wondrous features - I have the new 3GS iPhone, with a built-in compass. I hold up my iPhone to the night sky, and it shows me the stars right in front of me, exactly what I'm looking at. I turn with my iPhone in hand, and the map turns with me, ever so gracefully.
It's so beautifully done, it restores my faith in mankind.
