Astronomy Event Links - 4/17/2020

Link to the Mitaka and Stellarium programs.  Mitaka can only be downloaded to a Windows based computer.  The first link is the program itself and the second link is a how to video.

The other program that Don mentioned is Stellarium. 

 

https://stellarium.org/  (versions here to download to any computer)

 

or they also have a web based version - https://stellarium-web.org/

 

Recommended app for your phone is Sky Safari - https://skysafariastronomy.com/  The AR version (for $2.99) would be the best and most economical choice. 

 

And lastly, here is a link to the Evening Sky maps.  You can print a map for each month.  I really like how it provides specific dates for viewing objects with your eye, binoculars or a telescope.  It is amazing how much you can see just with your eyes.
