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.

Website Description

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.

About

I will highlight a fun Internet site every Saturday. The basic premise is to highlight sites that I regularly visit for a variety of reasons. All site recommendations are mine and are unsponsored. By highlighting these websites, I hope to provide value to those who may not know of the sites or who might be interested in visiting the sites. I also want to share the sites that I find valuable in the hopes that others will find them just as beneficial.
