The Horizon at 6pm

Part of: 

The horizon around the UK at 6 PM. Each image shows half the sky. These images are updated each day. Look at them over a few days to see how things change.

Use the images to plan your stargazing. Choose a direction you want to look in (for example, west) and look at the image of the night sky. When you are stargazing, look in the same direction and try to find some of the same star patterns in the sky. You could also look for a planet! Remember to look up at the sky, as well as near to the horizon.
