The black disk indicates the sky, in stereographical projection. The circle at the outer edge of the disk is the horizon. The middle of the disk is the zenith. North is up, east to the left, south at the bottom, and west to the right. The white dots are stars of magnitude 3.5 and brighter. The larger the dot, the brighter the star.

The white line indicates the celestial equator (declination 0°) from the equatorial coordinate system. The red line indicates the ecliptic (ecliptical latitude 0°) from the ecliptical coordinate system. The ecliptic is the approximate path of the Sun, Moon, and planets. The purple line shows where the Milky Way is.
