The summer ecliptic constellations are now visible by then such as Capricorn and Aquarius, while Pegasus and Andromeda are rising in the east.</p><p>That's all from memory, since I was out meteor observing overnight....<img src="http://sitelife.space.com/ver1.0/content/scripts/tinymce/plugins/emotions/images/smiley-wink.gif" border="0" alt="Wink" title="Wink" /></p> <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> <p><font color="#000080"><em><font color="#000000">But the Krell forgot one thing John.

Sky and Telescope, Astronomy.com, Heavens-Above and many other free sites can show you your current sky. <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> <p><font color="#000080"><em><font color="#000000">But the Krell forgot one thing John.

Like anything else, it's a tradeoff. I use SkyMap Pro, which I purchased, because it's renowned for it's attentive accuracy. There are plenty of free options as well, I just don't know much about them because I use what I purchased :) <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> <p><font color="#000080"><em><font color="#000000">But the Krell forgot one thing John.
