Thumbs up Cool Stuff.

Over the past year or so, a team here at my company worked with publisher Sky Publishing to develop the new Sky & Telescope website. Some of you may be familiar with their print publication. Anyway, the new site incorporates some pretty cool functionality that I thought might be of interest.

In particular, we developed an interactive Sky Chart which simulates a naked-eye view of the sky from any location on Earth, at any time of day or night, on any date from 1600 to 2400. It really is the first of its kind on the web. And its FREE...woohoo! The Sky Chart can be found at http://skyandtelescope.com/observing/skychart/.

We also developed a personalized Almanac with detailed sunrise, sunset, and moon phase information. The Almanac can be found at http://skyandtelescope.com/observing/almanac/.

I know...I know...if only it had a tide chart.

This is an AWESOME site! I will definitely use this through the season to track astronomical influences like moon phase throught the season. Will add to links on expertise page as well.

Nice work Holmes!
