Sky MAP For Viewing The Stars And Planets

The map displayed is for Atlanta, United States 2/26/2017, 6:23:00 PM. It is an example only of sky map. (You will need to change the location and time for your own area for a current night time view in your own area.)  (Also be sure to use the compass on the left of the star map to point the map toward north at your location. The top of the map then represents north where you live.)


- left click on a star or planet to get object information (magnitude, full name, rise/set times, etc) or, for HTML5 sky map, hover on a sky object to get its info
- zoom to see a higher level of details (the sky map renders dimmer stars for smaller field of views - magnitude level adjusts based on the zoom level)
- drag the sky map for navigation (the center of the map can't be dragged outside the borders of the map)
- use the menu entries to set your location, time, sky map options, etc
- Auto/IP Locate - automatically determines the location based on your computer IP address
- Location - manually add a location or pick a city from the combo box; also used to determine the latitude/longitude of a manually specified address
- click Go! after changing any editable fields (text boxes)
- use navigational buttons to zoom and pan or drag sky map
- use Options to change map size, display telrad finder, hide constellation names and constellation lines or draw AltAz grid

(Also be sure to use the compass on the left of the star map to point the map toward north at your location. The top of the map then represents north where you live. Then go out side with a printed copy of map, laptop, tablet or you phone and find Venus or the other planets after sunset. )

A Day on Venus

Venus has the most circular orbit of any planet in the solar system. Its axial tilt is only three degrees, so there are no seasons on Venus. Since it orbits closer to the sun than Earth does, Venus orbits faster and completes a circuit every 7.4 months. But its day is much longer than Earth’s. Venus rotates once every eight months, so its day is actually longer than its year. This is the sidereal day—the rotation of Venus relative to the stars.7 What is even more intriguing is that Venus rotates backward. All eight planets orbit the sun counterclockwise, as viewed from the solar system’s North Pole. Most of the planets also rotate counterclockwise,8 but Venus is the exception.9 On Venus, the sun would rise in the west and set in the east—although it would be difficult to see the sun in such overcast skies.

Secularists do not have a good explanation for the backward rotation of Venus. In the secular scenario, the solar system is supposed to have formed from the collapse of a rotating nebula. The natural expectation of this would be that all planets would rotate in the same direction at about the same rate, and they would all have very little axial tilt. Venus is the worst offender to this concept, since it rotates exactly the opposite of what the evolutionary models require. But we expect such diversity in the biblical view.

The backward rotation of Venus causes its solar day to be much shorter than its sidereal day—a unique phenomenon in the solar system. Recall that the solar day is the average time from one sunrise to the next as viewed from a planet’s surface (e.g., 24 hours for Earth). This is different (and normally slightly longer) from the sidereal day because planets orbit the sun and not the stars. Since Venus rotates in the opposite direction, its solar day is reduced to 3.8 months. Strangely, this is shorter than Mercury’s solar day, even though Venus physically rotates slower than Mercury.

For millennia, people have enjoyed the sight of the “evening star” shining brightly in the western sky shortly after sunset. Outshining all other stars, this remarkable beacon seems to brighten to unbelievable glory as twilight fades to night. It rises higher night after night and then stops and begins to sink lower each evening until it vanishes below the horizon. Sometime later, it reappears just before sunrise in the eastern sky as the bright “morning star.”

The "Big Bang" never happened  video Seminar by Spike Psarris exposes the atheist/evolution lie that our solar system was formed by asteroids hitting the planets and moons.

Evolution atheists use asteroids to "rescue" evolution from the facts of creation.

Evolution atheists say almost every planet and moon in our created solar system was hit by an asteriod that formed them into what they are today. Thats a lot of asteriod NONSENSE!


Evolution explanation:  In early history an asteriod must have hit it.


Evolution explanation:  Venus rotates backwards because an asteriod hit it and spun it around in the "wrong way".


Evolution explanation: Evolution atheists have no plausible explanation. They can't explain why the Earth is uniquely designed or fine tuned for life. They can't explain why their is plenty of water for a flood to cover the earth. They can't explain why the earth's magnetic field can't be billions of years old.

Our Moon

Evolution explanation:  A big asteroid hit earth and created our moon.


Evolution explanation:  An asteroid is responsible for creating Mars as it is today.


Evolution explanation:  They have NONE!


Evolution explanation:  An asteroid smashed into one of Saturn's moons and formed Saturn's unique rings.


Evolution explanation:  The circular orbit of Uranus is explained by an asteroid crashing into it forming its unique moons.


Evolution explanation:  NONE!!!!  Their computer simulations can't explain how Uranus and Neptune formed, in they in fact claim these planets can't exist so evolution atheists DENY they exist!!


Evolution explanation:  Formed by an escapted moon from Neptune.


Evolution explanation:  Long period comets, up to 200 years, come from an "Oort cloud" that they escape from every now and then. There is ABSOLUTELY NO EVIDENCE the "Oort cloud" exists!!

Colossians 1:15-17 (Speaking about Christ) “Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him. And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.” (KJV)
