FREE PHONE APPS FOR STARGAZING
The wonders of AR mean that you can point your phone at the sky, and SkyView can instantly identify stars and constellations that are right in front of you. This app is a huge source of astronomy knowledge, with information on satellites, planets and even upcoming stargazing events.
Star Walk 2
Sometimes it’s tricky to tell what you’re looking at in the sky, and Star Walk 2 makes it super easy. All you have to do is point your phone at the night sky and the app doesn’t just tell you what’s right in front of you, but also how close you are other stars and constellations in the sky. The only downside, the free version of the app does have ads, but it’s cheap enough to upgrade to and get an ad-free experience.
As the name suggests, the Star Chart gives you the full picture, giving you a view of the invisible universe at the tips of your fingertips. As well as showing you constellations and star names, you’ll also be able to see information like distance, brightness and object reference. This app is perfect for any budding astronomers!
Optional Family Camping: spend the night camping overlooking the stars and enjoy breakfast the next day served by the club.
Campout + Breakfast: All Members: Complimentary | Guests: $25++
