Guide to the Stars
16-inches in Diameter
The 16-inch diameter plastic star chart is for use in the northern hempisphere and anywhere in the US. It consists of two plastic circles riveted together that can be turned to find the stars for any hour or day of the year. Binocular and small telescope objects are noted on the chart. The back of the chart is packed with information including a table for the annual meteor shower, Moon map, planet facts, a tickle of mythology, astro history timeline, fun facts and more.
Note about the Planets: The planets are not plotted on charts of this type because they move daily along the gray circular band within the white oval. This path in the sky is called the ecliptic.
