Below are two maps of the sky, showing which objects in the BBC Sky at Night's Moore Winter Marathon are on view, either right now or this evening if it is currently daylight. The top map shows objects that can be seen with the naked eye and binoculars, while the bottom one shows those that require a telescope. You can use these maps to plan your observing session. For more detailed instructions on how to find each object, see the two observing guides: one for naked eye and binocular objects, and a second for telescopic objects.
To submit your observations, there are two observing forms you can download and fill in: one for naked eye and binocular objects, and a second for telescopic objects. These should be returned by the end of January 2013. For more information see the Sky at Night website.
The view starts off facing due east, but you can change the view direction by dragging the sky with your mouse or using the arrow keys.
You can also change the date and time by clicking on them, or alternatively there are a few keyboard controls which can be seen by pressing the '?' key.
