Free astronomy app

Who is taking Northwest's Intro to Astronomy course in either the summer or the fall? If you are, you might want to get some practice in with an astronomy app soon. Even if you are not taking an astronomy class, you still might want to take a look at an astronomy app to learn more about the night sky.

Try SkyView Free! Although there is a paid version of this app, there is a free version available for Apple and Android products.

For more astronomy app recommendations, take a look at this New York Times article.
