Some important things . . .

The night skies that are discussed on this web site are for the Northern Hemisphere only.  The Southern Hemisphere has a different view of the cosmos.

The reference point for some of the star diagrams is from a horizontal line drawn through the middle of the United States.

If you are south of this line, the constellations will appear higher in the sky.  If you are north of this line, they will appear lower in the sky.
