For April 1, 2011: It's spring and a great time to gaze at the stars. With the new GPS technology on smart phones, you can use an app to look at the night sky in your specific location. These apps also provide information about the planets. Two popular applications are Star Walk for iPhone, iPod, and iPad, and Sky Map for the Droid. These apps received rave reviews and should prove to be a wonderful learning tool.
