Hi all,

For my Rover Project I made a planisphere that can be downloaded, printed out, and assembled.  A planisphere is a star chart that can be set for any time and date.  It is useful for learning stars, constellations, and star motions in the night sky.

Give it a look!  I also plan to post more astronomy resources here in my Trailhead blog.

Included in the 7zip file are the planisphere files, assembly instructions, and use instructions.  Here's the file:

Thank you for this Planisphere! I am having trouble opening the file because I don't seem to have the right application to do so on my Mac. Any suggestions? There are a million choices...

Hi Katie,
Sorry for the delay.  Somehow I missed your comment.  I used 7-zip, which is freely and has versions for the Windows, Mac, and Linux.  The next post in my blog, which corrected a typo or two, is what I think is a more generic zip file.

I've changed my settings so I get notified by email when someone comments on my posts, so I hope I won't let any other comments slip by.
