Here are several links to my favorite star chart apps and astronomy software.  

find them at your app store; I have provided the app names!

*Make sure to use the “night vision” feature while stargazing, to keep your eyes sharp!  Bright lights while observing will negate your ability to see faint celestial objects!!
