Description
 
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.
Large Plastic 10"X8.5"
30*-40* latitude
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.
