Coeli - Stella 2000
This first-rate astronomy program creates an amazingly realistic
simulation of the night sky. It features planets, comets, DSOs, and
over 15,500 stars. From your virtual observatory, you can view the sky
from between 0-90 degrees of elevation and 0-360 degrees of the
compass; you can also advance or retard the sky by years, months,
days, and minutes of both sidereal or solar time. Each star has its
tint, each planet its hue, albeit cast over with tropospheric blue.
The cosmos is at your fingertips.
