Starwheel with date-calibrated ecliptic?
- View SourceHello!
I've just started teaching astronomy at Cuesta College in San Luis Obispo, CA, and
have just been informed that the Rand McNally "Glow-in-the-Dark Star Finder" (ISBN
0-528-83374-X) is out of print.
The thing I liked about it (other than the glow in the dark business) is that it had the
ecliptic marked off with dates, such that you could also use it to determine the path
of the Sun, and sunrise/sunset times for various dates. I haven't seen that in the few
other planispheres I've seen on the market. Would there be any other in-print
planisphere on the market with a date-calibrated ecliptic?
