Monthly Skymap

The following graphics indicate the appearance of the nighttime sky in the evening of the 15th of the month. The true sky will appear slightly different early and late in the month, but the differences are minor.

The entire hemisphere of the sky is represented, with zenith (the point straight overhead) at the center, and south at the bottom. The Moon is not shown, since it varies in position dramatically from night-to-night.

These views are for an observer at 40 degrees north latitude (Boulder, Colorado) - but will be reasonably accurate for anyone in mid-northern latitudes of the Earth.
