May / June 2014 Starmap

I realized today that I had not posted the link to the May / June Starmap. Here it is:

MCAO May / June Starmap

The starmap itself is from the heavens-above website, as are the dates for planetary oppositions and elongations. The additional sky and planet information is obtained from Stellarium. (I simply set the location to Rockville and look at the sky throughout the relevant months with an eye towards interesting groupings of the Moon and planets.) The meteor shower dates are obtained from EarthSky.

I hope you enjoy!
