Map of the sky
I've recently gotten back into astronomy for the first time in years. Whenever I find the eyepiece to my telescope, I plan on using it. The problem is that I don't know what to look at. I can definately spot Venus when I see it. Recently I've seen a red body that I'm sure is either Mars or Jupiter. But beyond that, I have no idea which dots are planets and which are stars. I used to have a program for Dos that would show you all the bodies in the sky at a certain time. Now if there was one for Dos, I'm sure there's one for unix, though I can't find one. A web site would work too that shows this information. (That's why I didn't put this in the software forum.) If it comes down to it, I'll use a Windows program and run it in Wine or put it on my old computer. Can anyone make a suggestion?
