eZipSky Astronomical Text Messages

I hope you all know by now that Universe Today publishes a daily guide of what you can see in the night sky every single night – Astronomy What’s Up. I just found out about a related service that sounds interesting. It’s called eZipSky, and they’ll send your cellphone an SMS text message whenever there’s something interesting happening in the night sky. Another cool feature is that they can send you an alert 30 minutes before the International Space Station will fly over your part of the sky.

I haven’t had a chance to test it out with my cell phone, but they offer a free 10-day trial, so you can give it a try. If you do sign up, they charge $2.95/month for the service. Great idea!

Check out their site at www.ezipsky.com
