Details

• The Sky map represent a hemispherical sky on a flat surface. • The edge of the chart represents the horizon. • The center of the chart is supposed to represent the zenith (the point directly overhead) at 40 degrees north. • East and west are reversed compared to an map of the Earth, but they will point in the right directions when you raise the map over your head. • Read the chart using following steps: • Find an isolated location . Avoid Full moon or too much haze and fog. • Acclimatize with darkness. • Pick a direction to face, say, South, and rotate the chart so South is at the bottom. Now raise the chart overhead. The directions on the chart will now correspond to the directions in the sky. • First find bright stars or a well-known constellation like Orion or Ursa Major. Make a connection with what you see in the sky with what you see on the map. • Once you’ve identified a few bright stars and constellations, move from what you know to what you don’t know. • While the charts are set for 9 p.m. local time, they are still useful for an hour or two on either side. • If you see an out-of-place star near the ecliptic (and in one of the constellations of the zodiac), it’s almost certainly a planet. Since the planets move around in the sky almost daily.
