Interactive Night Sky
Sky & Telescope Sky Viewer
Do you walk the dog at night and look up at the night sky? Maybe you like to sit on the porch and look up. Ever wonder what's in the night sky right when you look up?
Sky & Telescope can help. They built an Interactive Night Sky that shows you - at any given point - what is in the night sky.
What's nice is that you can change the date picker to be anytime - even in the past! You can see the night sky the day you were born.
Powered by Heavens Above, our interactive viewer charts the night sky as seen by eye. The map includes the Moon, stars brighter than magnitude 5, the five bright planets (Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn), and deep-sky objects that can be seen without the use of optical aid.
