Sidereal Clock

  • The sidereal clock link above takes you to a page called Heavens Above. At the very top of the page on the right-hand side (you may need to scroll) is a little box that says location in it. Click on the location and that will take you to a page that you can use to change the location to Lubbock. After you do this, it will take you back to the main page, but now it is set for Lubbock.
  • Scroll down on the main page to the section that says Miscellaneous and click on the link that says "What time is it?" that page will display the current Local Sideral Time for Lubbock.
