Our night sky changes throughout the year. Since the earth orbits the sun, the direction of our night hemisphere in space changes 30 degrees per month. Northern hemisphere observers can see the above sky views in each month at about local midnight. Watch the big dipper and its changing positions. The northern horizon is always at top. On the photographies only the planets change their positions in relation to the stars. Please note that "local midnight" might differ from the standard time of your time zone.
