WOW!APR 29, 2002 - Skymaps is a wonderful free online resource for anyone with an interest in celestial phenomena. For starters, and of special interest to novice stargazers, there's the free Evening Sky Map download. Available in versions for northern and southern hemisphere, these monthly maps require Adobe's Acrobat reader. (If you don't already have it, Acrobat is a free download too.) The monthly skymap can be printed out to take along as a guide to the night sky, but it's more than just a map. It also includes a guide to the month's major celestial phenomena - such as, in the case of May 2002, the line-up of planets in the early evening sky. There's much more, including a passle of excellent articles on a variety of astronomical topics.

Technical note: Web Site Garage rates Skymaps fair over-all, poor in load time (22.04 seconds with a 56k modem). In comparison, the page you're now reading rates good in both categories, with a load time of 7.43 seconds at 56k.
