The Sky Tonight

The chart below shows a map of the night sky as it will appear tonight at around sunset. The view is centred on an overhead position, with the horizon around the edge. If the text is a little compressed then have a look at a larger view.

The view above is based on LCOGT’s Virtual Sky, a browser-based planetarium. You can drag the sky around using the mouse, and change the time, date and viewing location by clicking on the text in the top-left corner.
