Finding Stars

This is Ben, and he came to our astronomy meeting tonight, because his grandmother is president of the club. So while people were inside preparing for the meeting, Ben was outside using the planetarium program in his smartphone. You start up the app, and then when you raise the phone up, and turn left and right, the phone displays the stars as they are seen in that part of the sky. It was cloudy tonight, and the sun had not yet set, but Ben was completely absorbed in seeing where stars and galaxies would be if he could actually see them.
