Go here http://www.fourmilab.ch/yoursky/ and you can put in the
location from which you want the sky map.
"To make a sky map, enter the latitude and longitude of your observing
site in the boxes below (be sure to check the correct "North/South"
and "East/West" settings) and press the "Make Sky Map" button below
the form. Your Sky will deliver a map showing the sky above the
location you specified at the current time. On that reply page you can
enter different dates and times, observing locations, display options,
and orbital elements of asteroids and comets you wish to track. If you
don't know your latitude and longitude, you can specify them by
selecting a nearby city."
Where it says 'universal time' under the map, you can put in a
negative number for BCE, then click update.
You also have choices of horizon and telescope views.
