Hi

I am a regular visitor to S&T website and use their interactive star chart a lot. I want to incorporate similar functionality in my outreach website. The chart used by S&T looks similar to Heavens-Above type.

 

Can any one guide me where can i find information for the same and also to any tutorials and sites that allow using interactive starcharts for free for outreach. 

 

Also please let me know where can i post this question - if this is an inappropriate section.

appreciate your response....

It looks similar to Heavens Above since the S&T website says it's powered by Heavens Above. Perhaps contact the Heavens Above website owner and see if he offers an API?

Sounds like Virtual Sky from the Las Cumbres Observatory may fit the bill.
