The night sky is a rich source of science and mystery! For those of you who are stargazers, curious about the planets, or would like to know more about the solar system, this workshop is for you!

Join us as we explore a smartphone app called Skyview Lite. This app allows you to point your smartphone at the sky and you will see stars, planets and space objects that exists in the direction you are pointing. You will also hear the names of stars and space objects announced if you are using your screen reader. You can also use audio beacons to assist you with identifying the location of a planet or star in the sky.
