There are many excellent astronomy resources available. This list is not all inclusive nor is it an endorsement of any resources listed.

  • Stellarium
    • http://www.stellarium.org
    • Stellarium is a free, downloadable software that shows exactly what you see when you look up at the night sky from whatever location you choose.
  • Heavens Above
    • http://www.heavens-above.com
    • Under Configuration choose “select from map” to easily zoom into a desired location, click on it and achieve the correct latitude and longitude; name that configuration
      • This will configure the rest of the tools, such as the “Whole Sky Chart” under Astronomy, for that location
