Sky Charts

This star chart is special; designed just for Coal Creek Canyon. We collect night sky events that folks in Coal Creek Canyon, Colorado would see, such as lunar eclipses, solar eclipses, and lunar phases. A section on planets gives readers rise and setting times at around the middle of the month. We also collect information about International Space Station (ISS) passes, Hubble passes, and Iridium flares where sun geometry reflecting off of solar panels results in dazzling brightening of the satellite passing overhead.
