Free Sky Maps Updated Monthly

With Mars approaching, people have been a lot more interested in getting to know their night sky. One of the best resources for this is a website called It offers a free map of the night sky from both the Northern and Southern hemispheres which you can download and print off each month. It also has a calendar of astronomy-related events happening for the month and a list of objects which are visible with the naked eye/binoculars/telescope. The best thing to do is sign up for the monthly newsletter so you’re notified as soon as a new map is ready.

Great site.
