Night is all about beauty of the sky filled with stars & twinkling towards us as if they are saying something to you, Sometimes at night i usually lie down & stare towards the sky looking into the stars – as most of you must be aware of this fact till know that i’m not a genius that can figure it out what star it is our from which constellation it is or is that any planet. Of course I can figure out quite a few like Orion, Cassiopeia & the Great Bear etc but what about the most ambiguous ones how can i determine which pattern of stars belong to which constellation or what importance does it have or is it somehow related to zodiac study etc. BlackBerry PlayBook & it’s new application Stellarium is your answers to all the question related to Astronomy star map.
