Sky Charts for Good (Dark) Sky Conditions

Sky Charts for Good (Dark) Sky Conditions

For a printer-friendly version of the chart (inverted colors, black stars on a white background), click here. You won’t see the names, or any lines, in the sky. What you will really see is more like the second view (but short red lines mark Regulus; of course, they won’t be in the sky).  Printer-friendly versions of both charts (inverted colors, black stars on a white background) are at the bottom (the short “Regulus” marks are blue).  In astronomical jargon, these charts show stars down to about 4th magnitude; with the bright moonlight, you will see few, if any, of the fainter stars.
