The Monthly Skyline

The ISU Planetarium maintains a 24-hour hotline dealing with celestial events. Skyline is made possible by the cooperative efforts of the ISU Planetarium and the Twin City Amateur Astronomers, "Partners in Astronomy Education." Skyline is updated at the end of each month. Below is the Skyline information for the current month. Information on the ISU Planetarium's sky-related programs can found elsewhere on this web site or heard on the telephone by calling (309) 438-5007.


Skyline for Spring 2018

We are currently updating our Spring 2018 sky description. Please check back with us soon!


Meanwhile, check out Sky & Telescope magazine's This Week’s Sky At a Glance for happenings in the current night sky!

If you enjoy the night sky then consider purchasing the Abrams Planetarium Sky Calendar – a day-by-day graphical representation of the night sky. Sky Calendar comes with monthly star maps, and can be ordered for only $12 per year, starting any time. It's a wonderful gift idea.

If you are looking for free monthly star charts then check out Skymaps.com

For a more detailed description of sky events, please visit Garry Beckstrom's monthly What's up in Tonight’s Sky.
