Google Sky Map is an Android application. It shows the astronomical view in the direction the phone is pointed. You can also use it to locate astronomical objects in the sky. It is self contained and does not use the communication features of the phone. It is a 20% project from the Pittsburgh office.

On Sunday evening, July 25, 2010, Google and the Amateur Astronomers Association of Pittsburgh sponsored "Deep Sky Urban Star Party" in Pittsburgh. The astronomy club provided telescopes and a lecture. Google provided funding and demonstrations of Google Sky Map and Google Earth.
