Stellarium (astronomy mapper/simulator)

#1 Post by Midas » Tue Jul 22, 2014 2:28 am

Stellarium can be your own pocket planetarium and is available for all major platforms (including Android).

Considering the only relevant mentions of this program are in "Updates", and that it used to be natively portable (see "Related posts" below) but apparently isn't anymore, time is about right to give Stellarium its own official forum topic -- I'm posting it to "Discussion" in attention to its present fuzzy status...

Although just to note but the android version is a port by a different author.

Anyways, great applications. I wish I had the money to get a fisheye lens and set up a house planetarium with this program (it supports it). That would be AMAZING.
