Interactive night sky

I came across this interactive night sky tutorial and it’s ACE!

It teaches you how to find Orion, Betelgeuse, Polaris, Jupiter, The Big Dipper and Cassiopeia.  I did the first part of it (Orion) then rushed outside and couldn’t find it 🙁  So I went back inside, finished off the tutorial and felt MUCH more confident that I’d be able to find Orion …. but the sky has clouded over!!

I’ll re-do the tutorial every day until I know it all inside out and hopefully I’ll get another clear sky soon so I can try out my new skills!
