Although becoming a registered user has several benefits,
it isn't necessary and you can still use Heavens-Above as an anonymous user. This page
tells you how to get the most out of the site without registering.
If you haven't already done so, you need to specify your location,
but you only need to do it once. You can
either enter coordinates and time zone manually, or select a location from
our database by clicking one of the
links below. Once you've done this, you will end up at the main menu page, and your
selected location will be indicated near the top. If you simply save this page
as a bookmark or favorite, the location details will be saved in the address, and you
don't need to specify them again if you load the bookmark. If you regularly observe from
several locations, you could save a different bookmark for each one.
