Monthly Sky : notes and links

The star map given here are drawn for central station of India (Long 82.5, Lat. +22 15), at 21:00 hours Indian Standard Time (IST). The maps shows slightly more sky than that will be visible from this station.  That is the angular diameter of the horizon circle is 220 deg. instead of normal 180deg.

Thus the maps can be used elsewhere in India at about 21:00 hrs.  The map can be used at 22:00 hrs. in early at 20:00 hrs. later this month.

The maps are drawn using stereographic projection (link), that preserves the shape but distorts the size. The constellations, therefore, close to the horizon are drawn bigger than those close to the zenith.
