To understand what you are seeing in the image above, imagine you are standing outside in the centre of a dome looking upwards, the night sky you see is imprinted on the outside wall of the dome.  If you live in the Northern Hemisphere, the point directly above you is called Zenith.  If you live in the Southern Hemisphere the point directly above you is called Nadir. 

Instructions for use:

Unfortunately, if you want to know the names of the constellations, you'll have to look these up separately.
