Title: website to track stars?
Post by: drummerboy on February 10, 2014, 11:13:15 PM
Hey, I've noticed for a couple years now that really early in the morning I see a big reddish star low in the sky towards the SE.  I'm really curious what this star is? Does anyone here know of a good website where you can type in your location, etc, to find out what I'm seeing? Thanks

If the star isn't twinkling it's probably Mars.
These are both good sites: space.com or nightskyinfo.com

Do you have a smartphone?  They have pretty good apps where you just point your phone in the direction and it shows you a star map of what should be there based on location, time, and season.

The Night Sky and Google Star Map (or something similar) are the two I whip out when wanting to impress the girlfriend.  :lol:

I don't need a smartphone to impress women, I just rely on my encyclopedic knowledge of all things 8)
