It is now possible to switch between the “standard view” and a “print friendly view” of the sky charts. In the print friendly view, many of the interactive controls are hidden and layout is redistributed in order to leave more space to the chart. Switch between the two views using the links at bottom-right of…
154P/Brewington is one of the many comets that are visible in this period. The comet is currently in Pegasus, and it’s magnitude is around 9, distant 242 million kms from the Sun and 167 million kms from Earth. Additional resources: Live position Ephemerides and sky charts
In this picture taken on Nov 21 2013, the asteroid is transiting between the bright galaxy NGC 4725 (magnitude 10.10) and fainter galaxies NGC 4712 (magnitude 13.30) and PGC 8643. The asteroid, distant 7,829,862,500 km from Earth, is around magnitude 17, barely visible in this picture taken in not ideal conditions because of Moon’s luminosity. Asteroid Makemake is one of the objects…

This image has been taken on Nov 19, 2013 at 11.30 UTC using the T21 telescope of the iTelescope service (431mm, f/4.5). Conditions were not ideal because of the presence of the Moon. Comet’s brightness seems approximately comparable to galaxy PGC 27237 (magnitude 14.90), visible in the same field. Further information about P/2013 V3 (Nevski): Live Tracker…
Predicted light curve for Comet C/2013 V5 (Oukaimeden)
Newly discovered comet C/2013 V5 (Oukaimeden) has been added to The Sky Live. The comet will reach perihelion on September 27, 2014 and, according to current estimates, it will become quite bright (magnitude 5-6) around that date. Currently comet’s brightness is around magnitude 18. See live position or compute ephemerides and generate sky charts.
The newly discovered comet C/2013 V3 Nevski has been added to The Sky Live. It’s now possible to see the comet’s live position or compute ephemerides and generate sky charts. Although predictions estimate it of magnitude 15-16, it recently brightened up, and some observers reporited it being around magnitude 10, so accessible with small instruments.
