Photography Tip - The Apps

Some of the more frequent questions I'm asked is how I know when and where the Milky Way will be visible and how do I know what I'm looking at in the night sky? In this age of smartphones the answer the simple, the apps.

Sky Guide

Sky Guide by Fifth Star Labs available on iOS is my goto for what's in the night sky. You can open the app and pan your phone around to figure out what that bright star is or you can choose a future date and time for an idea of what you will be able to see. Not only does it have huge catalog of celestial objects but it will also show you which satellite is shooting past.
