Morning Sky Map -- Fall 2005


    This is the morning sky looking S at around 4 am in late October.  This will change slightly during the morning and the season, due to Earth's rotations. Mars is visible with the naked eye, and the seven sister's (or the Pleiades) is visible high in the sky near Mars. Saturn can also be seen in the early morning.  This is often mistaken for the little dipper. The Andromeda galaxy is the farthest you can see with the naked eye at around 3 million light-years and yet it's our closest galaxy.  Find out more on the Pleiades (M45) and Andromeda galaxy (M31) from our Messier page.  This star map was made in Starry Night Pro.
