Orientate the phone in landscape mode, point it at the sky while propped up against something or mounted on a tripod, select night sight and it will enter Astrophotography mode. It'll take a 5 min exposure and run the google magic against the photo.

Pretty bad ass. I'm assuming its best to do that far away from city lights? Only place in Texas I know of you can see the Milky Way is in Big Bend.
