GTA Stargazing Mid-Spring Views – Kim’s Planetarium

0 Comments

Kim’s Planetariun shows astronomical views of the night sky over the GTA at various times throughout the year. The following are mid-spring 2019 images. The views will get increasingly layered with information.

It’s hard to see stars in the GTA at night. Light pollution and spring storms take away my sky. Really the night sky should look like this:

What are you looking at? See it again with the constellations. The constellations we see change as the Earth spins around the sun throughout the year. These are some mid-spring constellations:

The last image here is a sort of sky atlas.

These have been some mid-spring views of the night sky detailing horizon views, constellations and constellation outlines, deep space objects, planets in orbit, celestial grid, latitude and longitude lines, and the Milky Way. Happy stargazing GTA!
