    Here are some of the apps that club members like to use. Some are night sky related others are solar, some are weather to help us plan for the night.  We have some for fun when it’s cloudy and we can’t get out and some to tell us what that satellite going over head is or how to find an object.  Let us know if you have one to add to the list, we haven’t provided links, so if you have trouble finding them in your itunes or the play store let us know and we’ll give you more information. Thanks.
