I need a star chart for my son who is a Peace Corps
volunteer in Mali, West Africa. Is this just an ordinary Northern
Hemisphere chart or is it different? He is at about Lat 15 degrees N and
Long 4 degrees W. (yup, Timbuktu) If not regular, where do I get it?
There are numerous websites that provide sky maps of one sort or another,
www.skymaps.com downloadable, free, northern & southern hemispheres
You didn't mention whether your son had access to the internet. My son too
served in the Peace Corps in Africa (Swaziland) several years ago. You will
see a new independent son after his stint in the P.C. A great experience.
