This format allows to view and print ephemerides in excellent quality. Each ephemeris file covers one year and prints on six pages, with two months per page. Besides the regular planets, the ephemeris contains the minor planet Chiron and the mathematical point 'Lilith' or 'Dark Moon'. The ephemeris files may be downloaded and printed for private use only. To read, view and print these files, you need the free Adobe Acrobat Reader Version 3.0 or higher. Here are the ephemeris files for 9000 years (Some midpoint ephemeris files are further down on the page) (Karl Weber's 22°30 ephemerides are still further down on the page) (Heliocentric ephemerides are still further down on the page) The links appearing as numbers contain the ephemeris for this year; the links 'A' contain a list of mundane aspects (aspects formed by the moving planets on the sky).

Index Mundi - Country Facts Your Sky by John Walker Welcome to Your Sky, the interactive planetarium of the Web. You can produce maps in the forms described below for any time and date, viewpoint, and observing location. If you enter the orbital elements of an asteroid or comet, Your Sky will compute its current position and plot it on the map. Each map is accompanied by an ephemeris for the Sun, Moon, planets, and any tracked asteroid or comet. Your Sky provides three ways to view the sky with links, where appropriate, among the various presentations. Sky Map The sky map shows the entire sky as viewed from a given location at a specified time and date. To make a sky map, enter the latitude and longitude of your observing site in the boxes below (be sure to check the correct “North/South” and “East/West” settings) and press the “Make Sky Map” button below the form. Horizon Views Horizon Views, showing the stars above the horizon as seen from a specified observing site at a given date and time. The Virtual Telescope On the Web:

Mineralogy Database - Mineral Collecting, Localities, Mineral Photos and Data International Photography Awards | Annual Juried Photo Competition™ 40 maps that explain the world By Max Fisher By Max Fisher August 12, 2013 Maps can be a remarkably powerful tool for understanding the world and how it works, but they show only what you ask them to. So when we saw a post sweeping the Web titled "40 maps they didn't teach you in school," one of which happens to be a WorldViews original, I thought we might be able to contribute our own collection. Some of these are pretty nerdy, but I think they're no less fascinating and easily understandable. A majority are original to this blog, with others from a variety of sources. I've included a link for further reading on close to every one. [Additional read: How Ukraine became Ukraine and 40 more maps that explain the world] Click to enlarge.
