To use the accompanying chart, go out within an hour of the times listed and hold the chart above your head. Make sure that you have North on the chart lines up with North at your location. The chart will now be oriented to the night sky and the stars on the chart will closely match those seen in the sky. The chart is printed for 42 degrees north latitude. If you are located north of this latitude, stars in the southern horizon will be lower. If you are far south of this latitude, the opposite is true. All times are listed in the Central Time Zone. Add or subtract the appropriate number of hours from the listed times for your time zone.

Down to Earth Astronomy.


Changing Universe.


                I’m sure that everyone knows the old saying, “There are two things you can always count on, death and taxes”. There is one more item that can be added to the list, There is always change in the universe in which we live.

            On that note and due to changes in my universe, I am announcing to the readers of Skywatch – Down to Earth Astronomy that I am retiring. I have enjoyed doing the articles for the past fifteen years and bringing you the happenings in our night-time skies.

            Thank you all very much, and remember... keep looking up. You never know what you’ll observe and enjoy in the night sky!
