StarTracker App

While staring out one evening over the Gulf of Mexico from our Clearwater Beach condo, I was asked what was that bright star shining just above the Moon.  I figured it was probably a planet given how big and bright it was, but I was able to single it down to Venus (see the screenshot below) using the free (I love free) StarTracker app on my Pixel 7.  You just point it, day or night, at a section of the sky, and it identifies which planets, major stars, and constellations are in that direction.  Links to the app in the Google Play Store and Apple App Store are below.
