A planisphere, also called a Star Chart or, sometimes, a Star Wheel is a flat multi-part chart that displays the stars visible from a particular latitude for any time and date. This unique planisphere, The Night Sky™, pioneered the use of a two sided map projection to produce a low-distortion, simple to use guide to the night sky. With The Night Sky™ even a newcomer will be finding constellations in the night sky within a few minutes!

All of our planispheres are manufactured in the USA of the best materials to last long and retain their accuracy and usability.

Latitude Ranges:

Planispheres are produced for specific latitudes because the portion of the sky you will be able to see depends on where you are on the Earth. The farther north you are, the more of the northern hemisphere stars you will be able to see but the horizon will block more of the southern hemisphere. We produce our charts in more different latitude versions than any other major chart.

This cross-cultural view of Navajo and Western astronomy provides a look at traditional Navajo astronomy, including their constellations and the unique way in which Navajo people view the cosmos and their place within it.

“Half the Park is After Dark,” a slogan coined by astronomer and night sky advocate Tyler Nordgren leading up to the centennial of the National Park Service, is now a commonly recognized way to promote nighttime activities on our public lands. Growing up in Southern California, our favorite family summer vacations were often to places like Sequoia & Kings Canyon National Park, Yosemite National Park, and the National Forests surrounding them. At that time our evenings were mostly spent having dinner and hanging out at the lodge or motel. If I would have known back then that half the park is after dark, I would certainly have pestered my parents to explore and discover a night sky far richer than we had in our suburban home on the outskirts of Los Angeles."
