Compared to a street map on which we look down on, the maps below show East and West “reversed”. This is because the sky map shows what we see looking up to the sky. Imagine you are lying on the ground on a starry night and you are looking vertically up to the sky. Your feet are pointing to the south. West is at your right then and east at your left hand side, exactly like it is displayed on the sky map.
