If you wish to veiw this pane that Google Sky
has left out then download Microsoft's
World Wide Telescope
. The coordinates are a little diffrent than googles
so i have listed them below for you to make the square as you would see it on google sky with out the block. First you will probably need to take the
tour it has alot of usefull info on how to work WWT. To make your square you will need to click on the View
tab. In the first quarter of the
options you will see Constelation Lines, you want to make sure you have Focused Only
checked. After doing that click on New
Focused Only. You can name this whatever you wish, i chose to name it 'quadrant for Nibiru'. After that a side menu will pop up with the
constelations. Chose Orion
, that should move you to the location of Orion. Ok the next step you will click on the Search
tab at the top.
You will see at the top mid-right of the screen RA
this is where you will search for the four points of the square were gonna make. Now after you input each of the RA,Dec coordiantes you
want to zoom into that spot as close as you can and simply left click the crosshair this will map that spot and will show up in the list under Orion
to the right of the screen. You will need to do this for each point and after the last point re input the first point or simply put the crosshair over
the first point to compleat the sqare Once this is done you now have the pane that was missing from Google Sky to search.
Point 1.) RA: 5h54m22.22s
Dec: -5 45'25.78"
Point 2.) RA: 5h53m02.90s
Dec: -5 45'16.44"
Point 3.) RA: 5h54m21.60s
Dec: -6 16'23.01"
Point 4.) RA: 5h53m02.63s
Dec: -6 16'18.78"
Note: you must make sure when you put in the Dec part of the coordinates to leave a space between the first and second numbers for this is a space for
a cintegrade symble but it is not needed
