The wife and I went out this evening with a couple we've known for many years to a pub a few miles out of the city,we sat on the terrace by the car park for a few hours and talked to the husband at length about our shared interest in motorbikes,as the evening wore on I spent some time looking around at the sky,trying to orientate myself,my buddy asked what I was looking at so explained it was a hobby I was just getting into,we started to walk back to the car and the sky was the darkest and clearest I had seen In a long time,so took this as an opportunity to showcase my new found "expertise" when his wife comes over and asks what we're up to in a darkened corner,so I tell her and says"hang on,I've got an app for that!" Then promptly pulls out her phone and starts touring the sky!

I think the apps are quite popular with some people who otherwise would not look up what stars are out there any other way. It just makes it easier, but also another way to get people on the fringe of astronomy more involved.

I think she is more into,dare I say it ...astrology.....she has some "new age" friends so views the night sky differently,but still knows where things are,when and the phases of the moon,now she knows I have a scope,she is going to arrange with her friends to take it to their place of dwelling(I don't know what call a collection of tipis) because there is very little LP
