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.

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.
