Skygazer's Almanac 2014 40 DEG N
When does the Sun set, and when does twilight end? Which planets are visible? What time does the Moon rise?
Welcome to the Skygazer's Almanac 2014 - a handy chart that answers these and many other questions for every night of the year. It is plotted for skywatchers near latitude 40 degrees north - in the United States, Mediterranean countries, Japan, and much of China.
For any date, the chart tells the times when astronomical events occur during the night. Dates on the chart run vertically from top to bottom. Time of night runs horizontally, from sunset at left to sunrise at right. Find the date you want on the left side of the chart, and read across toward the right to find the times of events. Times are labeled along the chart's top and bottom.
In exploring the chart you'll find that its night-to-night patterns offer many insights to the rhythms of the heavens.
The SGA measures 10.5" wide and 16.5" tall. Detailed instructions on using the chart are included on the back side.
