    Teach and learn about the night sky and the history of its observation using this app. Its sequence of lessons can be used either when observing the stars or as a guide in advance. This astronomy app is designed to be listened to, an exciting audio guide to the night sky and the stars. The guide leads you on five 20-minute explorations, through constellations and celestial objects, answering some of humanity’s great questions. This app is designed to talk a viewer of the night sky through what they might see. One of six superbly written lessons is read out very clearly alongside a sky map that reflects what the viewer should be able to see from his or her location at the appropriate time of year. The narration includes some well-judged pauses for the listeners to make sense of what they have learned or for teachers to pause it for some discussion.
