Night Constellations Map

Author: Eleanor Lutz

This map shows every single star visible from Earth, on the darkest night with the clearest sky. The map also includes all of the brightest galaxies, nebulae, and star clusters from W.H. Finlay’s "Concise Catalog of Deep-sky Objects".
Due to Earth's slight axial wobble, stars appear to shift positions over time. This map displays each star's location on New Year's Day of the year 2000, showcasing noticeable movements throughout human history. In astrology, a person's sun sign indicates the Sun's position at their birth. However, due to these shifts, the sun signs of individuals born today differ by approximately one zodiac sign using traditional calculations from 2000 years ago.
