Drew and I were super ambitious the other night and set out alarms for 1:30 a.m. to go watch the perseid meteor shower!
There is an awesome iPhone app called Star Walk.
You can (with a 3gs) point your phone directly at the sky, and the app labels everything that you are looking at.
And shows a picture of the constellation you are looking at.
And if you want to know more about what you are looking at, you can select an image and it will zoom in and give you the details. So we drove up emigration canyon and whipped out the iPhone for a very informative meteor shower.
Needless to say we were exhausted the next morning. That is why I love Drew, he's always up for an adventure!
