How to use it:
1. Align the planisphere coin so the correct horizon name matches with the horizon you are viewing. For example: if you are looking at the northern horizon, hold the coin upside down so the name "North" meets downward with the actual northern horizon. If you are looking east, hold the coin on its side so the name "East" meets with the actual eastern horizon. The example below shows the coin rotated to match with the western horizon.

2. Rotate the disk to match with the current day and hour.

3. Look at both the disk and actual sky and start correlating the constellations on the planisphere with the stars in the sky. Click on constellations to see what each abbreviation on the coin means.
