DEC 12, 2005 - Stellarium Astronomy Software is where you can find a fine and free open source astronomy program for Windows(95/98/2000/NT/XP), Mac OSX and Linux platforms. I already have a handful of astronomy programs on my desktops, and a couple on my Palm Treo 650 smartphone as well, but I'm delighted with Stellarium. Like most software, it's easy to use once you get the hang of it, and it has a kind of real-life display of the night sky that makes everything else seem artificial in comparison. It'll definitely get you around the celestial sphere with style and assurance. What's more, Stellarium can be customized to your heart's content, like absolutely nothing else I've seen. Go ahead, download it and give it a try. Be sure to consult the FAQ before installing and running Stellarium. Don't forget the downloadable User Guide by Matthew Gates; and you really ought to take a look at the Stellarium Discussion Forum.
