At the urging of my Son last night I downloaded Skymap for my phone. Jupiter is clear as a bell in the southeastern sky at 9:10pm. I would have guessed Mars due to its color, had I not known otherwise. Also identified a few more that I'd never heard of, including Castor. This is easy to use as soon as you identify the horizon, then just hold it up next to what you're looking at and read its name. Pretty cool. Probably available for IOS too.

I hope it works for you. And I hope you can get some nice black sky out there on the Space Coast.

Thanks for the suggested apps, Mark. I'll try a couple of them out. I'm betting Flight Aware would draw a blank on that Predator that flew over us at the Fort one day lol.

Lol, probably! It tracks commercial flights, it's cool being in backyard and you see a couple contrails pull up app and see what plane and where it's going...

I use Night Sky Lite, works OK but the free version has annoying pop ups. Other thing is that iPhone is useless when it's cold outside. After a few minutes of use it shuts itself down "for protection" DAMMIT! Well, it's designed in California, I suppose no one thought about winter. I hope I won't ever need to make an emergency call when it's 30 below Shocked

Has anyone found a functional acoustic tach app for the iPhone?
