How you can view the planets line up Tuesday morning using an augmented reality app





     I came across a great article from Yahoo News which tells you how you can view the planets line up using an augmented reality app on your Iphone, Ipod touch or Ipad. Starwalk is a popular app which helps you point your phone and get a visual display of what you are looking at. This app will guide you in finding the right viewing position to see the spectacle. For other alternative apps, check this article from the New York Times.

     To get the best view, you will need to get up just before sunrise but with an augmented reality app, you can just sleep in and still see it - virtually.
