My Sky Charts display stars up to magnitude 6; magnitude 6.5 is the faintest group of stars visible to the naked eye under excellent, dark sky conditions. The size of each star is related to its magnitude (brightness). My Sky Charts are created using an advanced astronomy program that uses data from the European Space Agency Tycho 2 catalog which contains very accurate position, magnitude, and color index for 2.5 million stars, as well as the Hipparcos catalog, the Yale Bright Star Catalog, and The Hubble Guide Star Catalog along with several other databases. This program provides a true rendering of the sky for any time, date, or location on earth.


A constellation is a group of stars forming a recognizable pattern that is traditionally named after its apparent form or identified with a mythological figure. Modern astronomers divide the sky into eighty-eight constellations with defined boundaries. Constellation names identified on My Sky Charts by their three-letter IAU (International Astronomical Union) designation and are printed in magenta. Constellation lines are printed in yellow.


The "ecliptic plane" is an imaginary line that the sun, moon and planets follow as they cross the sky above us. It is identified on the chart as a curved line along which the sun, moon and planets appear. All of the celestial bodies are printed in aqua and identified by name on My Sky Charts.
